To handle this job, you can use the VLOOKUP function in Excel.

Select the cell next to the ages you want to group, and type this formula =VLOOKUP(B2,$E$2:$F$4,2,1), (B2 is the age you use, E2:F4 is the age groups you lookup based on, 2 indicates to return the second column in the lookup range) press Enter key, then drag fill handle down to fill the formulas to cells.
