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.

It's only in Excel you can't scroll? Can you scroll from side to side? If you have Excel 2003, try to press the "window" tab on the top and if the freeze pane is checked, uncheck it. Or if it says unfreeze pane, press that one. Hope this helps :)

You need to change the =IF(AND to =IF(OR

Using AND is saying both conditions must be true. Using OR is saying either condition 1 or 2 need to be true

The formula in both versions is the same:

=countif(range,value)

i.e. The below formula will increase its count by one if any of the 18 cells it's checking are equal to 1.

=countif(A1:B9,1)

=countif(range,value)

i.e. The below formula will increase its count by one if any of the 18 cells it's checking are equal to 1.

=countif(A1:B9,1)

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.

Add 1 + 1: =1+1

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.

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.
