How does the AAoA work?

AAoA mean average age of accts right? How is that calculated? is it based from the FIRST credit card you opened? Why if you began your credit as a AU does you AAoA begin since you were added as an AU?

Re: How does the AAoA work?

Credit karma does not do it correctly actually. They calculate based on open accounts. But FICO calculates it based on all accounts on your credit report including AU accounts
BCE: $0/$11,200, CSP: $0/$6500, Chase Priority Club: $0/$3500, Freedom: $0/$6000, Barclays NFL: $0/$7000 Discover: $0/$12,500, Citi Dividend: $0/$3500

EQ FICO - 728
TU FICO - 734
EX FICO(AMEX) - 712

Pretty sure CK is bad at that math. It says my AAoA is 1y 9m but that doesn't come close. It must leave something out of its calculations.
