There are several hundred functions within excel but most of us will probably only use 10-15 of them. Listed below are some of the more commonly used ones:FUNCTION =MAX(range_name) =MIN(range_name) =AVERAGE(range_name) =COUNT(range_name,NAME) =COUNTIF(range_name,NAME,range_name) =SUMIF(range_name,NAME) What it does returns the maximum value in the range specified returns the minimum value in the range specified returns the average value in the range specified returns the number of entries in the given range returns the number of times a particular condition is met returns a value if the given NAME is met in the range name

87 77 65 85 68

90 90 95 67 88

79 65 65 87 88

96 97 80 72 85

In the above example we want to enter a formula into cell F3 that returns the average exam mark for each student. To do this: 1. 2. Place your cursor in Cell F3 Enter the following formula: =AVERAGE(B3:E3) and then press ENTER

You will now have the average exam mark for each student. You can substitute the word AVERAGE with the following words to alter the formula: MAX MIN COUNT will return the highest mark per student will return the lowest mark per student will return the total number of marks per student (e.g. one student could have missed an exam)

EXAMPLE In the following example we want to enter a SUMIF formula in cell E2 which adds up all the sales in Column B if the name in Column A equals the Value in Column D. The formula we enter will be as follows:=SUMIF(A:A,D2,B:B) What the above formula is instructing is to look in the whole of column A (A:A) and if the name is the same as the value in cell D2 add the appropriate value in Column B. As this formula is relative when copied down D2 will change to D3 and so on thus adding up the cells for each individual sales person.
