Add calculations to category groups in Numbers on iPad
For each group or subgroup in a categorised table, you can add a function (a predefined calculation such as sum, count or average) to summarise the data in any column. For example, in a table with shirt sales data categorised by month, you could add a function to count the number of shirts sold each month. You can add these functions to the summary row in each category in your table.
Add a function to a summary row cell
You can add a calculation such as count, subtotal or average, for any column of data in any group’s summary row. The same calculation is automatically added to all groups at the same level in the category’s hierarchy.

A label row automatically appears above the summary row. These labels can’t be edited, but you can change their text style and hide them.
You can also sort groups by summary row values. See Sort table data in Numbers on iPad.
