with Microsoft Excel 2010 © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall9 Project Income and Expenses Fixed expenses –Remain the same each month regardless of the amount of activity –Include items such as rent, utilities, insurance, and general overhead Variable expenses –Vary depending on the amount of sales

with Microsoft Excel 2010 © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall10 Project Income and Expenses In cell C3, type =b3*(1+\$b\$12) –Formula takes the previous month’s sales in cell B3 and multiplies it by 110% –Determines a growth rate of 10% over the previous month –Cell B12 indicates the required sales growth rate of 10% –Absolute cell reference is used—this formula can be copied across the row
