Not sure if i follow your question, your not just wanting 13/12.9 for employee one correct? Are you wanting a weighted average for x amount of employees, or x amount of employees that worked the same amount of days? etc?

Assuming days in B2:B17 and Coils/Day in C2:C17 use this version

=SUMPRODUCT(B2:B17,C2:C17)/SUM(C2:C17)

That will give you the average coils per day with SUMPRODUCT giving the total coils, divided by the sum of column C which is total days

The coils per day is in itself a type of weighted average.
If that is not what you want, please expand on what you want the final statistic to represent.

Sorry, my description was right but formula wrong, should be dividing by sum of days, i.e. column B

=SUMPRODUCT(B2:B17,C2:C17)/SUM(B2:B17)

see attached
