The examples in the video tutorial are everyday examples of things you might want to take an average of. For example, in an average month, how much did I spend on gas on my credit card? In an average month, how much did I spend on dining out, travel, or entertainment with my credit card?
The MIN and MAX Function introduction also helps you identify what were your lowest and highest spending months for a category on your credit card.

Another everyday example in this tutorial is calculating your grade for a class. When I calculate the averages of my exam scores, what does my final grade come out to for each one of my classes?
