# Average groups of numbers within a larger group

I have a large group of numbers in a column. I would like to average those numbers in groups of 7. So average the first 7, average the 2nd 7, and so on down the whole list. Is there a way to do this without manually selecting each group to find their average?
I have Kutools and ASAP utilities if there is an option there also.
Thanks

If your numbers are in column A
=AVERAGE(INDEX(A:A, 1, 1):INDEX(A:A, 7, 1)) will return the average of the first 7 rows
=AVERAGE(INDEX(A:A, 8, 1):INDEX(A:A, 14, 1)) is the average of the next 7

If you put this in a cell
=AVERAGE(INDEX(A:A, 7*(ROWS(\$1:1)-1)+1, 1):INDEX(A:A, (7*ROWS(\$1:1))+1, 1)) and drag down, it will return all of the 7 cell averages.
