Hi- How do I figure the halfway point for a row of numbers. Like the numbers in the rows are: 5,11,45,12,98,32,55,75 What is the halfway point? Thanks.

I don't quite follow what you want.

Do you want the arithmetic mean AVERAGE(), or the middle value in order MEDIAN() (I think), or just the 5th number out of 9 ignoring the actual size of the numbers, or something else?

Use Insert >Function List or the Function Wizard to get lists of functions. I think the one you are looking for is AVERAGE or MEDIAN.

Depend. As mentioned above there is Median or you could use Count()/2 if you want the number of items in the list divided by 2 which will give you 1/2 the N of the list.
