Is there a way to do method 2 if using a formula? I've got it working on =Sum & =Avg formulas, but not the =D2/D3 ones :/

Putting the dollar sign after the number shows a lack of intelligence. In fact when it comes to currency the denomination goes in front of the number in just about all languages across the globe. The only time a currency symbol should follow the number is when less than the whole unit is used. For example $0.89 can be displayed as 89¢
