Need a range answer in excel

I'm calculating a range (15-25%) of a variable in another excel cell and want this new cell to answer with the range (.15*b27 to .25*b27), rather than a single answer. Is this possible?

Yes, Concatenate is the name of the formula.

=CONCATENATE(.15*B27," to ",.25*B27)
Which would return something like: "15.1254 to 25.5514"

If you want to limit the numbers in the returned data to whole numbers, you need to add the Floor formula.
=CONCATENATE(FLOOR(.15*B27,1)," to ",FLOOR(.25*B27,1))
That would return something like "15 to 25"

    And if you wanted to add the percent sign, it would need to go inside quotes.


    =CONCATENATE(FLOOR(.15*B27,1),"% to ",FLOOR(.25*B27,1),"%")

I do not know what a range is and where to find it on a Casio FX 9750GII Calculator

In statistics, the range of 1-var a data set is the difference between the largest value and the smallest. R=Xmax-Xmin
In functions: the range of a function is the interval (or the Union of intervals) of the real line where the dependent variable takes it values.
Ex: sin(x). Whatever the value of the independent variable x, the values of the function sin(x) are in the closed interval [-1,1]. The range of the functions sin(x), and cos(x) is [-1,1].
No use of a calculator for finding the range of functions.

My TI-53 calculator will not graph all it says is ERR: window range

I do not know of any TI calculator with Model number 53, but I will try to give a general answer. If you get a window range error that means that the Window limits are not set correctly. For example, the lower limit in X, Xmin must be algebraically smaller that the upper limit, Xmax. The default for the TI graphing calculators are Xmin=-10, and Xmax=10. Similarly the Ymin must be smaller than Ymax. The default limits for the y-variable are Ymin=-10, and Ymax=10. If your calculator has a Zoom function ( if it is a graphing calculator, it must have it) then Press Zoom key and select Zoom Standard or ZoomStd.

Excel 2007

The IRR function is provided by Excel so you can calculate an internal rate of return for a series of values. The IRR is the interest rate accrued on an investment consisting of payments and income that occur at the same regular periods. In the values provided to the function, you enter payments you make as negative values and income you receive as positive values.
For instance, let's say you are investing in your daughter's business, and she will make payments back to you annually over the course of four years. You are planning to invest $50,000, and you expect to receive $10,000 in the first year, $17,500 in the second year, $25,000 in the third, and $30,000 in the fourth.
Since the $50,000 is money you are paying out, it is entered in Excel as a negative value. The other values are entered as positive values. For instance, you could enter –50000 in cell D4, 10000 in cell D5, 17500 in cell D6, 25000 in cell D7, and 30000 in cell D8. To calculate the internal rate of return, you would use the following formula:
The function returns an IRR of 19.49%.
The ranges you use with the IRR function must include at least one payment and one receipt. If you get a #NUM error, and you have included payments and receipts in the range, then Excel needs more information to calculate the IRR. Specifically, you need to provide a "starting guess" for Excel to work with. For example:
=IRR(D4:D8, -5%)
This usage means that the IRR function starts calculating at –5%, and then recursively attempts to resolve the IRR based on the values in the range.

Input data

If you want to transfer your data into SAS, SPSS, or some other program, follow these guidelines:
The cells in Row 1 should contain the column's eventual data set name. Each name should be a relatively short and unique acronym that clearly identifies the data. It should begin with a letter and contain only letters, numbers, or an underscore ( _ ) where spaces would naturally fall. Avoid using special characters such as $, &, @, in variable names. Since each row represents the values from one subject, the first column(s) should contain one or more variables that give each subject a unique identifier. They become especially important if you need to merge two or more data files.
In Excel, data formats are defined for a range of cells rather than for a complete column. For this reason it is important that each entire column, including cells with missing or uncollected data, have one, and only one, format. Actually, you do not need to format the entire column, only the portion you will eventually use. Highlight that portion and select the appropriate format from the Format/Cells option. Do not select formats that will enter commas, dollar signs, or other visual enhancements. Numeric, text, and date formats (e.g. mm/dd/yy is often a good choice) are probably the only formats you'll ever need.
The "Split" option (under the "Window" pull-down menu) keeps the row of variable names and the columns of identifiers in view, whatever range of cells in the worksheet you may need to review. First place the cursor at the most extreme upper left-hand corner where data entry begins (e.g., the intersection of Row 2 and the column in the upper left-hand corner where data appear) and then select "Split" from this menu. For any row or column of the worksheet you move to, you'll know exactly which variables you are observing (column names) and their associated ID values (rows).
For versions of Excel later than 4.0, one file can contain multiple worksheets. By default, the tabs at the bottom of these sheets are supplied names ("sheet1," "sheet2," etc.). You can change these names by clicking this space with your mouse and entering a new name. Use the same conventions for first-row variable names: use a short acronym of the page contents that begins with a letter, use only letters or numbers, and enter the underscore ( _ ) where a space naturally falls.

You may want to try =COUNT(A1:C9) for example. In brackets type the range of cells you want to count and excel will give you the number of cells that contain numbers.

How do I run a regression analysis in Excel

You probably want to use the LINEST function for straight lines or LOGEST for exponential curves.

In Excel 2007, there are a few tricks. One is to select a range of cells and enter your formula there. If you do not select a range of cells all the variables (coefficentis, R2, errors, etc) will not be dislayed.

The other tricks is one must hit Ctrl+Shift+Enter to display the results. is a link from Microsoft with a detailed explaination. Happy OLS regressing!
