Basic Spreadsheet Functions Objective 4.01

2
Functions are predefined formulas that perform calculations by using specific values, called arguments, in a specific order. They can be used to perform simple or complex calculations. are predefined formulas that perform calculations by using specific values, called arguments, in a specific order.

3
Components of a Function Cell reference Cell reference Parentheses Parentheses Conditions or criteria Conditions or criteria

4
The Cell Reference Indicates a cell’s location and provides instructions for how cell data is copied or used in calculations

5
Cell References Relative reference - cell value changes as the formula is copied Absolute reference - cell value remains static when copied to other locations Mixed reference - indicates the combination of an absolute cell ($A$4 ) and a relative cell (A3)

6
Parentheses Control the Order of Operations

7
Conditions or Criteria Tell the function how to calculate the results and what data to use

8
Basic Functions: Sum, for example =Sum(C4:C18) adds the range of cells from C4 through C18 Sum, for example =Sum(C4:C18) adds the range of cells from C4 through C18 Average, for example =Average(C4:C18) determines the average of the range of cells from C4 through C18 Average, for example =Average(C4:C18) determines the average of the range of cells from C4 through C18

9
More Functions Maximum, for example =Max(C4:C18) finds the highest number in the range of cells from C4 through C18 Maximum, for example =Max(C4:C18) finds the highest number in the range of cells from C4 through C18 Minimum, for example =Min(C4:C18) finds the lowest number in the range of cells from C4 through C18 Minimum, for example =Min(C4:C18) finds the lowest number in the range of cells from C4 through C18
