How to calculate percentage pass and percentage fail?

I am working on excel with 22 number of students, each with mark score on cell rows. Average class mark is 48. I want to calculate in a single cell the percentage number of students that pass the test and in a separate cell the percentage number of students that fail the test. I will appreciate your help. The article does not cover how to calculate percentage of items in relative to a known value. I have tried: The sum if function. But the criteria is not satisfied since I am working with a number not character. I think it was caused by: My main priority cell is a single cell containing the item to determine. So the sumif function cannot work

I have a question about how to formulate a percentage on Excel of "passing students" when a 1 is used for passing and 0 is used for failing?

I am a teacher. I am calculating the percentage of students who have mastered a subject. For example: the student receives a "1" for passing "0" for failing. I have 20 students. I'm trying to create a formula in excel for finding the average for the number of students who have PASSED. . . Tina 1. Brian 0. Chris 0. Tucker 1. Kelly 0. . So I just hand calculate myself: 2/5 = 40% (passing). Trying to find an easy way to do this on the spreadsheet to calculate my score. Because I am not using pass or fail...I am using 1 and 0 and I need to specifically find the average of students who have passed. I have tried: I have tried looking on Google and tried to review the videos here. But, I don't find anything which specifically answers my question. We also have an IT person, whom I asked and he did not know the answer either. I think it was caused by: I just don't know where to go to find this answer. Or even what category it fall under. Most of the time I will see how to find the average using the AVERAGE Dropbox, but this does not help me as I need to know the percentage of students who have passed.
