Why not simply use a PivotTable?

Average of 1,1,1,1 = 1
Average of 2,2,2,2,2 = 2
Average of 3,3 = 3

i have acquired the data from experiment. The data is in excel form. I have attached the sheet with question. This contains about 2000 data points. Like this , i have 40 sheets. I was looking for some formula in excel which can solve this.

this formula
=IF(MOD(ROW(),20)=1,AVERAGE(OFFSET(K1,,,20)),"")
gives me average of 20 data sets and i have to pull the formula up to 2000 data points. However,in my case the interval is not fixed. It depends on repetition of number.

please see the attached file.
average--2-.xlsx

But your values in column F are not the same, they are rounded to 1 decimal place. Do you want the average based on the rounded value?

If so, in column H:

=ROUND(F1,1)

and in column I

=IF(H1=H2,"",AVERAGEIF($H$1:$H$2005,H1,$G$1:$G$2005))

Copy both down as far as required. The Average will show on the last entry for each value in F.

Thanks
