# Totals by relation to a different column

Another seemingly easy question.

I have a sheet that has three columns.

Column A: Date
Column B: Names (say Name X, NAme Y, NAme Z, multiple entries for each name)
Column C: Totals.

I would like to create coulmns that create totals and averages for each NAME. Does that make sense? Say there are 500 rows. How do create sums based on the Name?

The question I want to put in my spread sheet would be: What's the total for every row in which the Name X appears? What's the total for every row in which Name Y appears?

And then:

What's the average based on how many times Name X, Y or Z appears?

### Excel Facts

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)
Use SUMIF()

e.g. =Sumif(B1:B500,"X",C1:C500)

or create a pivot table....
