The column to the right has a total of the percentage increase, but I would like to take that total and divide it by the number of rows that made the total.

If you want to add additional columns with statistics, use eventstats:
... | eventstats count sum(foo) avg(foo)
If you just want the statistics, use stats:
... | stats count sum(foo) avg(foo)
I'm not sure what particular statistic you're asking for, so those two are just examples similar to the words you used.
Thank you, but that is not exactly what I am looking for.
Field=percentage with a value=.25
and the second value in the field
Field=percentage with a value=.50
If I add them I get a total of .75, but I want to divide that total by the number of values added to make it. In this case it would be .75/2=.375
So if I I have a column of percentages, I want to add them all up and then divide the total by the number of values that made the sum.
My bad. You were absolutely correct.
