Thumbs up Answer: Formula for average recorded blood pressure readings in 1 column .

Hi Harry,

Yes, there is a formula to average your blood pressure readings in one column. Here are the steps:
  1. First, select the cell where you want to display the average.
  2. Then, type the formula "=AVERAGE(A1:A4)" (without the quotes), assuming that your blood pressure readings are in cells A1 to A4.
  3. Press Enter and the average of your blood pressure readings will be displayed in the selected cell.

That's it! The formula will automatically calculate the average of all the readings in the specified range. You can also adjust the range of cells to include more or fewer readings as needed.

Hi Harry

with you blood pressure readings in A2:A4 the following array formula will
give it to you (needs to be entered with control & shift & enter, not just
enter)

=AVERAGE(VALUE(LEFT(A2:A4,3)))&"/"&ROUND(AVERAGE(VALUE(RIGHT(A2:A4,2))),0)

Cheers

Hi
it would be much easier if you could split it in two separate column (and
then using AVERAGE). But if you have to use it this way try:
Use the following array formula (entered with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER):
=ROUND(AVERAGE(--LEFT(A1:A3,FIND("/",A1:A3)-1)),0) & "/" &
ROUND(AVERAGE(--MID(A1:A3,FIND("/",A1:A3)+1,10)),0)

Hi

just a note, Frank's formula is more flexible than mine (i've assumed that
the top value is always 3 digits and the bottom always 2) .. so you're
better off going with his formula.

I just tested Frank's on my program and it works really well. You may want
to also use MAX & MIN.
=ROUND(MAX(--LEFT($K$8:$K$41,FIND("/",$K$8:$K$41)-1)),0) & "/"
&ROUND(MAX(--MID($K$8:$K$41,FIND("/",$K$8:$K$41)+1,10)),0)

Be sure to ARRAY enter.

However, I have a program (free for asking OFF LIST ONLY!!!) that separates
into
Systolic Diastolic Pulse
125 67 68
126 64 73
123 70 73

and then you can see the charts I made.

Hi JulieD,

Your formula worked out great, however, my average goes out to 10 decimal
places on the upper number. How can I correct?

Thanks JimT
