Excel has a function that allows you to quickly calculate the weighted average of a set of numbers. This type of calculation applies to a sequence of values that have different weights. The useful feature is to find a number that represents a dataset taking into account the importance of each table item in school grades, for example, each subject can impact the overall score at different levels. Here's how to find weighted arithmetic media in the Microsoft Spreadsheet Editor.

Step 5. Hit Enter to see the result of the weighted average in the cell. The formula used adds each value multiplied by the corresponding weight and, in the end, divides the sum of all this by the total of the weights.
