The sample dataset contains hourly views of different blog posts of ExcelDemy from 9/20/2022 to 9/24/2022. From these hourly views for a day, we will return the averages for this date.

## Method 1 – Combining AVERAGE, ROWS, and OFFSET Functions to Calculate Daily Average in Excel

Steps:

• Enter the following formula in cell E4.

`=AVERAGE(OFFSET(C\$4,(ROWS(E\$4:E4)-1)*24,0,24))`

Formula Breakdown

• ROWS(E\$4:E4) returns the number of rows from E\$4:E4.
• ROWS(E\$4:E4)-1 becomes 0.
• (ROWS(E\$4:E4)-1)*24 becomes 0.
• OFFSET(C\$4,(ROWS(E\$4:E4)-1)*24,0,24) extracts a range from C\$4 with a height of 24.
• AVERAGE(OFFSET(C\$4,(ROWS(E\$4:E4)-1)*24,0,24)) returns final output 791667.
• Press the Enter key and drag the Fill Handle down.

## Method 2 – Using PivotTable to Calculate Daily Average

Steps:

• Select a cell from the data table.
• Select PivotTable from the Insert tab.

• Click on the New Worksheet option from the dialog box and press OK.

• Drag down the Date & Hour field to the Rows area and the Hourly Views field to the Values area.

• Click on the dropdown symbol for the Sum of Hourly Views field in the Values area to select the Value Field Settings option.

## Method 3 – Calculating Daily Average with Excel AVERAGE, IF, and INT Functions

Steps:

• Enter the following formula in cell E4.

`=AVERAGE(IF(INT(\$B\$4:\$B\$123)=D4,\$C\$4:\$C\$123))`

The INT function will return the integer values of the range \$B\$4:\$B\$123 by extracting only date values.

The IF function will check if the values are matched with the date 9/20/2022 and for matching TRUE will appear, and for other non-matched values, FALSE will appear.

In the range, \$C\$4:\$C\$123 those hourly values will be returned that are TRUE in the corresponding rows.
