What are the formulas in grading the grades uisng microsoft excel


Formulas are used to specify calculations based on values in designated cells. Excel supports basic calculations as well as statistical, trigonometric and other specialized functions.

Formulas used in Excel must follow a certain syntax.

  1. All formulas begin with an equals sign (=).
  2. Some formulas use operands such as +,-, *,/ for addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.
    For example, the formula =A1+A2+A3 would add the contents of cells A1, A2 and A3.
  3. Other formulas refer to different functions such as SUM, AVERAGE and others.
    For example, the formula =SUM(A1:A3) would add the contents for the range A1 through A3.
  4. Formulas can be combined with operands.
    For example, the formula =10*SUM(A1:A3) would add the contents cells A1 through A3 and multiply them by 10.
  5. Functions can be nested within each other.
    For example, the formula =SQRT(10*SUM(A1:A3)) would take the square root of ten times the sum of cells A1 through A3. When functions are nested, it is important that the number of left parentheses match the number of right parentheses.

Excel Spreadsheet


It could have a virus or simply too much data in it or too much data linked to it. Try doing a copy of the whole spreadsheet, and then paste the data into a new spreadsheet. If it doesn't contain too many different formulas, try pasting only the values, and then replace the formulas manually. You might also try just deleting the links, if there are any. If this doesn't solve it, reply to this thread and let us know.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

BASIC EXCEL FORMULA


Are you looking to solve any particular problem?--- because there are a huge number of possible formulas in Excel.

However, in my opinion, the most commonly needed ones are addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and summing.

Suppose you have the following numbers typed into your Excel spreadsheet:

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3
2 10 4
3 15 2
4 1 2 3


Then suppose you type in the following formulas (in the D column):

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 =A1+B1
2 10 4 =A2-B2
3 15 2 =A3*B2
4 1 2 3 =sum(A4:C4)


Then the following answers will appear in the D column:

columns: A B C D
rows
1 20 3 23
2 10 4 6
3 15 2 30
4 1 2 3 6

Duplicacy in excel sheet


Since you are searching the data by the phone number , first select all the data in the spreadsheet and sort it in ascending order by the phone number.
Then, assuming you have 5 columns of data A through E, and the phone numbers are in column E, with row 1 occupied by column headings, use the following formula in cell F2=IF(E2=E1,"Duplicate",1)

Drag this formula down column F till the end of your data
Select the entire data and do an auto filter
In column F filter the data by Duplicate and delete all these rows
What remains should be unique data
