Adding 5 values and dividing does not work
Hi all ! Help!
I am trying to add these 5 cells and then divide by 5. But I get this odd number 4.2??
Please note the H/L columns also has a formula
The COLOR(AE) columns has a conditional formula to turn red/green
Thank you!

Hey @Robert K
Right now you are adding the first three cells together (using these parentheses) to keep the values together, then adding 4 and 5 separately, and then dividing by 5. This means that only [5th Patient H/L]@row is being divided by 5 instead of the total.
=(1 + 2 + 3) + 4 + 5 / 5
You'll want to structure your formula like this:
=(1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5) / 5
Cheers,
Genevieve
