The easiest way to take the sum of a filtered range in Google Sheets is to use the following syntax:

SUBTOTAL(109, A1:A10)

Note that the value 109 is a shortcut for taking the sum of a filtered range of rows.

The following example shows how to use this function in practice.

**Example: Sum Filtered Rows in Google Sheets**

Suppose we have the following spreadsheet that contains information about various basketball teams:

To add a filter to this data, we can highlight cells **A1:B10**, then click the **Data** tab, then click **Create a filter**:

We can then click the Filter icon at the top of the Points column and uncheck the box next to the first three values 84, 89, and 93:

Once we click **OK**, the data will be filtered to remove these values.

If we attempt to use the **SUM()** function to sum the points column of the filtered rows, it will actually return the sum of all of the original values:

Instead, we can use the **SUBTOTAL()** function:

This function takes the sum of only the visible rows.

We can manually verify this by taking the sum of the visible rows:

Sum of Visible Rows: 99 + 94 + 97 + 104 + 109 + 99 = **602**.
