determine total % project completion using average

I am trying to calculate the % complete of a project across multiple smartsheets. I am using formula:

However, it only winds up counting the %values in these cells. For example, the first project is 9% complete, the second is 1% complete, so it returns the value of 10%. if you average these percentages, then the value should return 5%.

    Hi @mmscott92

    It looks like you're averaging two ranges, and then adding each average together (with the + sign between them).

    If you want to keep your formula the same, you could then just divide by 2. To do so, wrap your whole formula in parenthesis, then use the / sign for divide. Try this:

    =(AVG({ABC Plan Range 1}) + AVG({DEG Plan Range 2})) / 2

    Here are some Help Center articles I used: AVG Function / Formula Operations

    Let me know if this works for you!
