If you want to view the result of a formula (say, a/b) as a percentage, you can right-click on the cell which contains the value and select "Format Cells." Pick "Percentage" as the format, and the cell value will automatically appear multiplied by 100 and with a % symbol.

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.
Ok - if your question is "What is Excel" - then the answer is that it is a spreadsheet program that allows you the ability to compute data (usually numbers) for example, pulling together a list of hours worked by employees and adding them up automatically. It also can be used to develop sophisticated computational models and I have used it to develop professional services proposal sizing tools using formulas and functions ... which is a good segwey into my other answer.
If your question is "what is a function or formula in Excel" - then the answer is a function or formula in Excel is a collection of mathematical, text, statistical, etc. preprogrammed tools that allows you to manipulate the data you have in your spreadsheet e.g. a SUM() function that adds a series of numbers, and AVERAGE() funtion that computes the average of a series of numbers, etc.
Step1. Start Microsoft Excel and open the file you want to change.
Step2. Double-click on the cell where you want the total to appear.
Step3. Press the = key on the keyboard. This tells Excel that you are entering a formula into the cell.
Step4. Enter the formula, then press Enter. Follow the steps below for an example.
Step5. Enter an opening parenthesis character: (.
Step6. Enter a cell name. For example: =(E2.
Step7. Press the + key.
Step8. Enter another cell name and a closing parenthesis character: ). For example: =(E2+E3).
Step9. Enter a minus sign and a third cell name. For example: =(E2+E3)-E4.
Step10. Press the Enter key to accept the formula. The cell will display the sum of the first two cells minus the third cell.
$('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){
e = $(e);
e.find('img').error(function(){
$(this).unbind();
e.remove();
});
});
Tips & Warnings
Formulas are just equations. Instead of adding or subtracting numbers you are adding and subtracting the contents of a cell.
Excel
includes a number of predefined functions to use as well. You can
combine the predefined functions into your own formula. (See "How to
Use Provided Excel Formulas.")
That depends on which version of Excel you are using. Excel 2003 supports up to 65,335 formulas Excel 2007 has no limit. you can communicate between the worksheets which are contained by one workbook (one excel-file). Communicating between files cannot be done with formula's.
Yes you can and there are two choices. The simple solution is to label a cell "divide by" and put your number in that filed. Then, by changing only that, your answer (in a separate cell) will be available. There are more complex solutions -assuming your divide by number had some rhyme and reason that could be put in place but.....try this first and at a later date go back and play. Learning to do that will give you more than a fair amount of Excel expertise....something you may find fairly valuable as you continue on using Excel. FYI...I have developed full blown applications on Excel....it is an excellent tool. Hope this helps....Tango.
Suppose the value for $ is stored in cell A3. Your formula would look like this: =(A3+A3*0.25)*1.5
The equals sign at the beginning of the formula is necessary. And if you want the result to be formatted as currency, you can do so by right-clicking the cell or column, format cell, number tab, choose currency.
