14 In cell under height in inches enter the following formula All formulas start with ‘=Sum’ this tells the program that there is a calculation that it needs to perform. All information to be calculated need to be with in brackets. The sum in the green brackets will be calculated first. Click on the cell yon want to perform the calculation on then multiply * by 12 (because there are 12 inches to a foot) The sum in the black brackets will be performed second. Once the first calculation has been performed add + the second cell and close the bracket, this tells the program the calculations are complete.

15 FunctionMathematical symbol Excel symbol Add++ Subtract-- Divide÷/ Multiplyx*

16 Copy the cell

17 Highlight the next cells in the column using the left mouse button. Press the right button once to bring up the menu. Paste the formula using the indicated button on the menu. This pasts the formula into the cells and will calculate the correct amounts for the data in the cells

18 We are going to use the following formula to convert the measurements in inches to meters Start with ‘=sum’ as before open two brackets. Click on the cell you want to perform the conversion on and multiply it by 25.4 (there are 25.4mm in an inch) Now divide the number you have just calculated by 1000 as the number is in mm and you want it in meters. (there are 1000mm in a meter.

19 Enter the formula in to the cell. Once the formula is entered copy and paste the formula into the other cells as before


21 Highlight the cells with the measurements in. Click on the decrease decimal button once, to reduce the number to two decimal places

22 Copy the height measurements from the cells in sheet two, and paste them in to the height cells in sheet one.

Use the divide symbol “/” and enter the number of people in your data set. Close bracket and press return. Display your mean to two decimal places.

32 In the mode box enter your mode.

33 If the data in your set is odd the mode is the middle number. If the date set is even then you will need to add the two middle numbers together and divide the sum by two.


35 For the range cell start by =sum( then subtract the smallest number in your data set from the largest number in the data set.

36 Repeat the statistical analysis on the shoe size data

37 Highlight the data table and click on the insert tab

38 Click on the column tab in the graph section of the menu Choose the 2-D compare graph.
