Question about Microsoft Business & Productivity Software

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.

You have to start the sequence with a slightly different formula because there is no preceding value for Monday.

The rest of the formulas are running totals so they are the same just dynamically duplicated down the column add infinitum.

Just duplicate the the formula Picking up the value form the result column and subtracting the next running subtraction value.

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.

1. Make sure you have entered the numbers you'll need in necessary columns

2. Go to the column you would want the results to appear in

Guide: + (addition); -(subtraction); *(multiplication); /(division)

3. Type in =(select a cell)+ (Select the other cell) - (select the appropriate cell) and so on

4. If you are looking for a sum of try this formula, SUM=(select the first cell in the roll or column, hold the shift key and select the last number) then press enter

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.

Subtraction can be done in two ways in Office using the following formulas in the formula (fx) bar:

The SUM formula subtracts by changing the sign of the reference. Remember the sign rules, and thus - -x is in effect +x.

- =A1-A2
- =SUM(A1,-A2)

Hi saleem_share,

I'm not sure why you would want to use excel to create a P&L, but the same formula would apply to excel as it would for a standard P&L. In one section of the spreadsheet add all of your income accounts. Then Subtract your cost of sales from that. That would equal your Gross Profit. After that add all the rest of your Expenses, and subtract from the Gross Profit, which would give you your net Profit or Loss Example:

Description

Amount

Formula

Sales Product A

1,000.00

Sales Product B

1,000.00

Total Sales

2,000.00

SUM(C1:C2)

Cost of Sales Product A

500.00

Cost of Sales Product B

200.00

Total Cost of Sales

700.00

SUM(C5:C6)

Gross Profit

1,300.00

SUM(C4-C7)

Auto

25.00

Utilities

50.00

Payroll

300.00

Office Supplies

20.00

Total Expenses

395.00

Net Profit

905.00

SUM(C8-C14)

I hope this helps

Are you looking to solve any particular problem?--- because there are a huge number of possible formulas in Excel.

However, in my opinion, the most commonly needed ones are addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and summing.

Suppose you have the following numbers typed into your Excel spreadsheet:

**columns: A B C D**

**rows**

**1 ** 20 3

**2 ** 10 4

**3 ** 15 2

**4 ** 1 2 3

Then suppose you type in the following formulas (in the D column):

**columns: A B C D**

**rows**

**1 ** 20 3 =A1+B1

**2 ** 10 4 =A2-B2

**3 ** 15 2 =A3*B2

**4 ** 1 2 3 =sum(A4:C4)

Then the following answers will appear in the D column:

**columns: A B C D**

**rows**

**1 ** 20 3 23

**2 ** 10 4 6

**3** 15 2 30

**4** 1 2 3 6

However, in my opinion, the most commonly needed ones are addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and summing.

Put the figure which you have to multiply in cell A1, Put the figure in cell A2 by which you have to multiply by, type =A1*A2 in cell A3. You will get the right answer.

You may substract, multiply or add by this method by appropriate mark in cell A3 in between A1 and A2.
