Question about Microsoft Excel for PC
Doing a Straw Poll with results to ten yes/no questions
Picture 1 column for yes responses, 1 column for no responses, the total number of responses is a variable.
Now I need to develop a percentage cell for yes and a percentage cell for no responses and the formula for each of these is absolutely beyond me. Though I really can do basic formulas.
No problem, Melinda, I am here to help!
If I understood correctly, your spreadsheet looks something like this:
A B C D
1 Question Yes No Total
2 Is sky blue? 20 2 22
3 Is world round? etc.
In this case, the formula for % of Yes would be: =B2/D2. This would give you a decimal point result such as 0.909091. Now if you want to make this look like a percentage in your spreadsheet, just do the following:
1) click on the cell where you have the division formula
2) clck on Format in the top menu bar
3) click on Cells
4) click on the Number tab (if you're not already there)
5) click on Percentage in the list of categories
6) click OK
To boil it all down to a simple principle, percentages are created in Excel by dividing the two numbers using a formula with "/" in it, and then formatting the result to look like a percentage instead of a decimal.
I might have misunderstood your question, and I have an idea of what else you might have been asking (and another slightly more complicated solution for it!), so please let me know if my first answer didn't hit the mark!
