Therefore, how do you solve this problem?

To obviously visible what the difference of using Average Formula between the range of the number “Include 0” and “Exclude 0”.

We use Excel formula “=AVERAGE(AB5:AB16)” to calculate the percentage average from January-December. The outcome is 76.11%. That would be true?

2] The second sample, we use all the same data as the number one. On the other hand, we have changed the formula to use “=AVERAGEIF(AB5:AB16,"<>0")” instead. Here we gain 91.33%

It does not matter what our calculation criteria is, here, my article is just only to show you how the two formulas work in different way. You can pick any of them and use it as you want.
