DEFINITION OF A WORKBOOK
This is the working environment of the application, consisting of several worksheets.
These worksheets are further divided into several rows and columns to generate cells. The rows
are numbered from 1, 2, 3... 65536, while the columns are labeled from A, B, C IV, making a
total of 256 columns.
From the screen shown above, the workbook is divided into three main groups. They are
as follows:
The control panel
The worksheet
The status bar

THE CONTROL PANEL


The control panel is the area on top the screen. This panel displays the title bar, menu bar,
command tabs, office button and the ruler as in other office application.

MENU BAR: This is the next rectangular bar found immediately after the title bar, it
contains various command tabs which include the home, insert, page layout, formulas,
data, review and view including the Microsoft excel help command.

SOME TERMS ASSOCIATED WITH MICROSOFT EXCEL


CELL: This is the smallest unit in the worksheet used in entering data or information, it is
identified by it cell address. This address can be specified using the cell label (the name
use in identifying a row or column in a worksheet, i.e. row label or column label) drawn
from the column heading and row heading. Range is the reference of more than one cell.
THECELL POINTER: This is the rectangular highlight that allows the operators to type
and enter data or information to a selected cell or a range within the worksheet.
SPREADSHEET: This is already defined above, but it can also be defined as a table of
cells arrange in columns and rows in which numeric datas and mathematical formulas can
be entered and manipulated.
WORKSHEET: This is defined as the working environment of Ms Excel, which is made
up of columns and rows. It is also known as a spreadsheet.
COLUMNS: The columns are the vertical borders produced in a worksheet.
ROWS: The rows are the horizontal borders produced in a worksheet.

WHAT ARE FORMULAS?
Formulas are equations that perform calculations on values in your worksheet. A formula
starts with an equal sign (=). Excel calculates formulas using the BODMAS principle. For
example, the following formula multiplies 2 by 3 and then adds 5 to the result.
=5+2*3
The answer to the following equation is 11 instead of 21.

16
A formula can also contain any or all of the following: functions, references, operators, and
constants.

PARTS OF A FORMULA
Functions: The PI() function returns the value of pi: 3.142...
References: A2 returns the value in cell A2.
Constants: Numbers or text values entered directly into a formula, such as 2.
Operators: The ^ (caret) operator raises a number to a power, and the * (asterisk) operator
multiplies.

OPERATOR
This specifies the type of calculation that you want to perform on the elements of a
formula. Microsoft excel includes four different types of calculation operators which include
arithmetic, logical, text and reference.

ARITHMETIC OPERATORS
NO. ARITHMETIC OPERATOR MEANING EXAMPLE
1 + (Plus sign) Addition 8+2
2 -(Minus sign) Subtraction 5-4
3 * (Asterisk sign) Multiplication 5*3
4 / (Forward slash sign) Division 10/2
5 % (Percent sign) Percent 15%
6 ^ (Carat sign) Exponentiation 3^2

LOGICAL OPERATORS
NO. LOGICAL OPERATOR MEANING EXAMPLE
1 = (Equality sign) Equal to A1=B1
2 > (Greater than sign) Greater than A1>B1
3 <(Less than sign) Less than A1<B1
4 >= (Greater than or equal to sign) Greater than or equal to A1>=B1
5 <= (Less than or equal to sign) Less than or equal to A1<=B1
6 <> (Not equal to sign) Not equal to A1<>B1

17
TEXT OPERATOR
NO. TEXT OPERATOR MEANING EXAMPLE
1 & (Ampersand) Connectors or joining of two values North & Wind
to produce one continuous text produce Northwind
value

REFERENCE OPERATORS
NO. REFERENCE OPERATOR MEANING EXAMPLE
1 : (Colon) Range operator, which B2:B10
produce one reference to all
the cells.
2 , (Comma) Union operator, which SUM(B5:B15,D5:D15)
combines multiple
references into one
reference.

18
EQUATION CONVERSION IN EXCEL
NO ALGEBRAIC EQUATION EXCEL EQUIVALENT

4 P(1+r)n P^(1+r)*n
5 a2 b2-2abcos Sqrt((a^2)-(b^2)-(2*a*b*cos(anglerad))

FUNCTION
Functions are predefined formulas that perform calculations by using specific values called
arguments in a particular order structure. Examples include:
FUNCTION DESCRIPTION
Var An estimate of the variance of a population, where the sample is a subset of the
entire population.
StDevp The standard deviation of a population, where the population is all of the
values to be summarized.
Sum The sum of the values. This is the default function for numeric values.
Count The number of values. The Count summary function works the same as the
COUNTA worksheet function. Count is the default function for values other
than numbers.
Product The product of the values.
Median The MEDIAN function measures central tendency, which is the location of the
center of a group of numbers in a statistical distribution
