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.

Notes:

1. Here is also another formula may do you a favor:=SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(D2:D15,2)<6)*E2:E15)/SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(D2:D15,2)<6)*1) and press Enter key.

2. In the above formulas: D2:D15 is the date range which you based on, and E2:E15 refers to the data range which you want to get the average.


Calculate the average based on weekends

And if you just want to average the orders in weekends (Saturdays and Sundays), the following formula may do you a favor:

Please type this formula: =AVERAGE(IF(WEEKDAY(D2:D15,2)={6,7},E2:E15)) into a specific blank cell, and press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys simultaneously, and then you will get only the average orders in weekends. See screenshot:

Notes:

1. You can also use the below formula to solve this task: =SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(D2:D15,2)>5)*E2:E15)/SUMPRODUCT((WEEKDAY(D2:D15,2)>5)*1) and just press Enter key.

2. In the above formulas: D2:D15 is the date range which you based on, and E2:E15 refers to the data range which you want to get the average.

Hello, Manigandan
If you need to average from Monday to Friday and average from Saturday and Sunday, please apply the below formulas:
Average from Monday to Friday: =AVERAGE(IF(WEEKDAY(A2:A8,2)={1,2,3,4,5},D2:D8))
Average from Saturday and Sunday: =AVERAGE(IF(WEEKDAY(A2:A8,2)={6,7},D2:D8))
Note: Both the above fromulas are array formulas, please press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys together to get the correct result.

How do I get my formula to work with it not taking zeros into the average?
=AVERAGE(IF(WEEKDAY($B$4:$B$34,2)={1,2,3,4,5},C4:C34))
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
Hello, Phil,
To get the average while skip the zeros, the following formula may help you:
=AVERAGE(IF((WEEKDAY($B$2:$B$14,2)<6)*($C$2:$C$14<>0)=1,$C$2:$C$14))

After pasting the formula, please press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together to get the result.

Please have a try, hope it can help you!

Yes, this works. Why does it work with such a large RANGE and not just for the number of days in a month?

Doing it my other way I had to manually change the formula's each month. THANK YOU 😀👊

I have this formula; {=AVERAGE(IF(WEEKDAY(I12:I25,2)={1,2,3,4,5},J12:J25))} the range: i12:i25(col 1 is the month date series) and j12:j25(col of values to be averaged) will change each day

Hello, Daniel
To solve your problem, you just need to adjust the cell references large as this:
=AVERAGE(IF(WEEKDAY(I12:I100000,2)={1,2,3,4,5},J12:J100000))
Please have a try, hope it can help you!

if I use your formula for just weekends...=AVERAGE(IF(WEEKDAY(I12:I100000,2)={6,7},J12:J100000)) the value comes up as "0.0"

Hello, Daniel
Sorry, the above formula is not correct, plrase use the below formulas:
Average weekend: =AVERAGE(IF(IF(NOT(ISBLANK(B2:B10000)),WEEKDAY(A2:A10000,2)>5,FALSE),B2:B10000,FALSE))
Average workday: =AVERAGE(IF(IF(NOT(ISBLANK(B2:B10000)),WEEKDAY(A2:A10000,2)<6,FALSE),B2:B10000,FALSE))

Note: Both the formulas are array formulas, please press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together to get the result.

Please try, thank you!
