# How to use the Excel AVERAGEIFS function

Excel AVERAGEIFS function is used to find the average of the array based on multiple criteria or condition.
Syntax:

=AVERAGEIFS (average_range, range1, criteria1, [range2,criteria2])

Let’s understand this function using it an example. Here we need to find the average of the Sales having name “Joe” & region “North”

Use the formula to get the average

=AVERAGEIFS(C2:C10, A2:A10, G1, B2:B10, G2)

C2:C10 : Range where the average needs to be calculated
A2:A10 : Range where Name “Joe” criteria occur
G1 : Match value
B2:B10 : Range where Region “North” criteria occur
G2 : Match value 206.67 is Joe’s North region sales average

Now we need to find the average Sales of combined joe’s and Mike’s

Use the formula

=AVERAGEIFS(C2:C10,A2:A10,{"Mike","Joe"}) As you can see the average for the data is here.
