In a recent Friday Challenge, you were tasked with creating a formula that would work out for a non-contiguous (not connected) range that ignored Zero and Ignored Blanks. But, what we didn’t take into account was how to modify the formula to react to negative values in our average non-contiguous range.
Here was the original challenge and some responses:
Here was my solution and other responses:
So the challenge is, how to modify either of these solutions for negative values.
If we enter these values, our previous solution will return 0.5 as the average when it should be 0.333

Let me know how you solve adding negative values to this calculation in the comments below.
