Software program capable of performing many calculations, functions, graphs Arranged in rows (by number) and columns (letters) Intersection of a row and column is the cell reference, e.g., B4
Sum a row or column of numbers Method 1: use the Auto sum Method 2: key using formula bar: Notice the “range” inside the brackets
=E9-E8 Subtract the value in E8 from E9 =G3*F2 Multiplies G3 by F2 =K3/C4 Divides K3 by C4 =AVERAGE(E1:E8) Finds the average value in this range =MIN(E1:E8) Finds the lowest value in this range =MAX(E1:E8) Finds the largest value in this range =COUNT(E1:E8) Reports the quantity of entries in this range
Useful to show increase in value Example 1: =B4+B4*0.05 (fair) Example 2: =B4*1.05 (better) Example 3: =B4*$K$1 (best) Where $K$1 contains % you can change!
Control~Shows formula view Widen ColumnsHold left mouse key over line to move Merge Cells Format NumbersRight-click, Format
Create a formula and “drag” lower right corner to apply across or down (click the pic!)
=IF(B9>-1,"Profit","Loss") Show the word "profit" if the value is zero or higher, otherwise shows the word "Loss"
By default copied or filled formulas reflect related cells What if we need % of one total? $ signs in cells signify the cell is constant
By default column A is the x-axis and B, C, D, etc. are for values (Y-axes) Use the graph icon Name the series to create proper legends Excel graphs are drab … spice them up!
