# Working only with the equal values based on columns

Hello
I have a database similar to this example:
Where my last two columns are pixel position.
I want to average only the beams for which the last two column are equal. So for example row 2 and row 3 have the same values in the last two column -> I average the rest of the columns.
Row 1 and 6 have the same values in the last two columns -> I average the rest of the columns.
Row 1 and 2 do not have the same values in both of the last two columns -> I do not average the rest of the columns.
Any ideas?Thank you!

Hi Bianca, until that 'single line answer' does not pop up, try using this:
eqs = aa(:,end-1:end);
idx = 0;
Exc = [];
for i = 1:size(eqs,1)
if ~any(i==Exc)
Tvg = prod(eqs(i,:)==eqs,2);
idx = idx + 1;
Final(idx,:) = nanmean(aa(find(Tvg),:),1); % nanmean because you have NaNs in your example
Exc = [Exc,find(Tvg)'];
end
end
Your final table, I belive will be the "Final" var.
Best
