The AVERAGE function in Microsoft Excel is used to calculate the average of the numbers given in the specific range.

**How to calculate Average in Excel**

The average of given numbers can be calculated in Excel by using

```
=AVERAGE(number1,number2...)
```

Instead of mentioning the numbers, we can also mention the range

```
=AVERAGE(A1:A10)
```

It will calculate the average of the numbers mentioned in the cell range A1 to A10.
