Calculate the average based on a specific day of week

To get the average based on a specific day of the week, the following formula may help you. In this example, I will calculate the average orders of Mondays of the data range, please do as follows:

Please enter this formula: =AVERAGE(IF(WEEKDAY(D2:D15)=2,E2:E15)) into a blank cell, and then press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys together to get the correct result. See screenshot:

Note: In the above formula:

D2:D15 is the date range which you based on;

The number 2 indicates Monday, and 1=Sunday, 3=Tuesday, 4=Wednesdays…, you can change the number 2 as your needed;

E2:E15 refers to the data range which you want to get the average.

Tips: The following formula also can help you to solve this problem: =SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(D2:D15,2)=1)*E2:E15)/SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(D2:D15,2)=1)*1) and just press Enter key to get the result. (D2:D15 is the date range which you based on, E2:E15 refers to the data range which you want to get the average, the number 1 indicates Monday, 2 = Tuesday, 3= Wednesdays...)


Calculate the average based on workdays

If you want to average the orders with all workdays in the range, please apply this formula: =AVERAGE(IF(WEEKDAY(D2:D15,2)={1,2,3,4,5},E2:E15)), then press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys together, and you will get the average orders from Mondays to Fridays.
