Introduction to Excel  Spreadsheets are often used to:  Perform basic mathematical operations  Find values such as profit or loss  Find the average, maximum, or minimum values in a specified range  Graph or chart data to assist users in identifying data trends  Sort and filter data to find specific information

Formulas  Formulas are the real workhorses of an Excel worksheet  If you set up a formula properly, it computes the answer when you enter it into a cell  From then on, it keeps itself up to date, recalculating the results whenever you change any of the values that the formula uses  All formulas begin with the = sign

Formulas  Addition  Select the cell you would like this information to be in. Type =, then select or type the first cell, followed by the + symbol, and then type or select the next cell you want to add. Press Enter i.e. =A2+B2

Formulas  Adding  If you are adding consecutive numbers in a column or row, you can use the SUM formula. Type =SUM, and then the range you would like to add in parenthesis (you can type or select the range with your mouse). i.e. =SUM(C2:C4)

Formulas  Subtraction  Select the cell you would like this information to be in. Type =, then select or type the first cell, followed by the – symbol, and then type or select the next cell. Press Enter i.e. =A2-B2

Formulas  Multiplication  Select the cell you would like this information to be in. Type =, then select or type the first cell, followed by the * symbol, and then type or select the next cell. Press Enter i.e. =A2*B2

Formulas  Division  Select the cell you would like this information to be in. Type =, then select or type the first cell, followed by the / symbol, and then type or select the next cell. Press Enter i.e. =A2/B2

Graphs  Charts and graphs are a great way of representing your data  Excel offers almost every chart type and makes it easier to draw them so that your data can quickly be understood  Examples (Link will not work outside of presentation) Examples
