Hello.

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).

Feel free to let me know if you need any more clarification or if I missed something!

    Hello again,



    You would use the colon to select multiple cells. An example would be to calculate the average of the values within a column of cells you could use "=AVERAGE(A1:A10)"

Using excel to solve problem by trial and error method


In A1, put a random value of d as 0.1. Then in B1, put your equation 5*d^4 - 10.29*d^(-1.333), wherein refer d as A1. Then use goal seek function on Tools Menu. First "Set cell" as B1, "To value" as 0.124 and "By Changing Cell" as A1. Excel will do the Trial & Error and will give you the answer in Cell A1.

Multiply a value by a minimum amount


You need a cell to put these numbers first. Lets say A1 is your reference cell where the numbers are going to be input. B1 is the cell that you are going to see the calculation. Type the following formula in B1

=IF(A1<4,4*60,A1*60)

after doing this you can put any number in A1 and it will give you the calculation in B1 as the way you wanted.

Any formula in Excel starts with the equals sign ("="). This is how Excel distinguishes between formulas and literal values. Knowing this, you can create lots of formulas using the usual operators of +, -, * and / for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, respectively. Please see the examples below.

Add 1 + 1: =1+1
Add the contents of cell A1 to the contents of cell B1: =A1+B1

Subtract 2 - 1: =2-1
Add the contents of cell A1 from the contents of cell B1: =B1-A1

Multiply 1 times 2: =1*2
Multiply the contents of cell A1 times the contents of cell B1: =A1*B1

I hope this resolves the question. If not, please let me know.

Data validation in excel


instead of validation use conditional formating (under format menu). If c1<1 format cell as red. It does not have the attention getter that validation does not require the active cell event. Every other option requires the cell become active for a test.

Multiple arguments in excel


Okay, here's a possible solution--based on my interpretation of your problem.

Suppose you have some value in cell B1, and the month (either Jan, Feb, or Mar) is stored in cell A1. The formula in C1, which performs calculations based on which month appears in A1, is as follows:

=IF(A1="Jan",B1*0.25,IF(A1="Feb",B1*0.3,IF(A1="Mar",B1*0.4)))

In this example, the value in B1 is multiplied by .25 if the month is Jan, by .3 if it's Feb, and .4 if it's Mar.
