Right Click on cell with mouse and select format cells
then select number . If formula was for example percentage of cell a2 calculated from b2 calculated in c2 then in c2 you put =a2/b2
Then you can use percentage in the number format
or you can go =(a2/b2)*100
Also make the cell width more if a problem.
To get around this, you can calculate your numbers as percentages first. For example, if you type the formula =10/100 in cell A2, Excel will display the result as 0.1. If you then format that decimal as a percentage, the number will be displayed as 10%, as you 'd expect.Aug 2, 2011
Excel simply divides the values in column C by the total in C11. For the formula shown, the result is the decimal number .63. Because the Percentage number format is applied to cell E6, Excel displays .63 as 63%.
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.
All formulas begin with an equals sign (=).
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.
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.
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.
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.
Make sure, when you entr a formula that you hit the ENTER key instead of just moving to tyour next cell. To have all numbers added or moved, use the"Special" application, or change the value. Such as -if you are working in text mode and you enter numbers, they are only numbers in text mode. They don't have a value. Correct the cells to reflect numbers. Right click, format cell - select what you want.
Hello this is Baris, If you forget about the numbers and start naming your cells you can figure out your own formulas... Example :)
You buy apples, and you pay $2 per piece
in this case you have 2 numbers to find out how much you will pay.
price per apple quantity
you have 3 apples you pay 6 dollars very simple right. 2 times 3.
Same thing in excel but this time you will just say price times quantity and excel will do the calculation for you.
Lets name your cells Type in A1 Price Type in B1 Quantity Type in C1 Cost
Now, Column C is your calculation area. Type in A2 2 (price for apples) Type in B2 3 (quantity of apples) Type in C2 =A2*C2 (price times quantity)
Now on, you don't have to calculate anything. You can change you price and quantity, cost will change by itself. Because the value in that cell is now related to other values in A2 and B2. I hope this gives you a starting point.
For cell B1 you can use this (without the quotes) "=A1"
Then for cell A2 and down you don't need a formula, but for B2 you can use this formula. "=(B1+A2)" Then click on that cell and drag the mouse down for as many cells as you want this formula to include and press Control and F keys to fill the formula down the column.
For your second formula, you would type 100 into D1 and in D2 you would use the formula "=D1-E1" (again, no quotes).
