First screenshot:

In Step 1, you have to add the numbers for Jan, Feb, ..., Jun.

In Step 2, you have to divide the sum from Step 1 by the number of months.

The quotient that you get is the average.


Second and third screenshot: the text explains exactly what you have to do.

Hi, I did that but it is wrong

Have something to with decimals somewhere



This looks very much like you're taking a course in using Excel. To the extent that's the case, you have some help from @Hans Vogelaar , you have the instructions --which are entirely clear--from the assignment itself. Now the challenge is for you to figure it out. My advice often to beginners is to give  yourself permission to "play with Excel." You are not going to break anything by entering formulas and seeing what results are produced. If they're "off" from what makes sense--by decimal placement or whatever--then tinker with the formula until the result is correct. You'll learn more by figuring it out yourself than by getting the "correct solution" from somebody here.
