How do You Average Percentages?

Answer

Averaging percentages is very much like averaging regular numbers. To average a percentage, take for example 50%, 40% and 20%. Take all of the numbers and add them up and you get 110%. Take the number of percentages and divide that into the sum total percentage to get the average. In this case the average would be 37%.

The best way to average percentages is to first add them all together. When you get a total then you should divide that by the count of the percentages you added to get the average.
