How is ave. account age calculated?
Last month I had 13 accounts with an average age of 82 months. I added two new accounts (now up to 15) and my new average age of accounts dropped to 62 months. I added only 2 accounts to keep my average age above 6 years but It dropped me from a B to a C on the age of accounts grade :(. What's up?
