Total Cost = Units on Hand * Unit Cost. For example, in cell D3 you might have the formula =B3*C3 • Use the SUM function to calculate the total units on hand as well as the total cost for all five items. For example, =SUM(B3:B7) • Submit your spreadsheet via Blackboard. Excel Assignment #2 You are a spreadsheet specialist consultant for Super Store Furniture. The owners of the store want to know the profit potential of their furniture inventory. The data and the format of the desired report are shown below: Item Units on Unit Cost Total Cost Average Total Value Potential Hand Unit Price Profit Rugs 983 89.00 Sofas 1980 678.00 Loveseats 2187 189.00 End Tables 2354 65.45 Lamps 2346 23.85 Total Average Lowest Highest Instructions: • Prepare a spreadsheet using the table above. Be sure to use appropriate formatting. • Compute “Total Cost”, “Average Unit Price”, “Total Value”, and “Profit Potential” by using the following formulas: o Total Cost = Units on Hand * Unit Cost o Average Unit Price = Unit Cost * (1 / (1 - .65)) o Total Value = Units on Hand * Average Unit Price o Profit Potential = Total Value – Total Cost • Use the AVERAGE, MIN and MAX functions to determine the appropriate values for the “Unit Cost”, “Total Cost”, “Average Unit Price”, “Total Value”, and “Profit Potential” columns (Rugs through Lamps).
  • 3. • Submit the spreadsheet via Blackboard. Excel Assignment #3 Problem: Your supervisor in the Payroll department has asked you to modify a payroll workbook that can be downloaded from www.cos.edu/sargent (Assignment Downloads), under Illiana Custom Homes.

Tax” in cell I3, “State Tax” in cell J3, “Net Pay” in cell K3, and “% Taxes” in cell L3. • Change the column widths as follows: A = 25.00; B = 9.43; C = 7.00; D = 6.00; E = 13.14; F through K = 9.71; and L = 8.43. Change the row heights as follows: row 1 = 41.25; rows 2 and 3 = 18.00. • Delete row 7 (Rifken, Felix). Change Hadef Kaden's (row 5) rate of pay to $8.00 and number of dependents to 10. • In column E, enter the YTD Soc. Sec. values listed in the table below: Employee YTD Soc. Sec. Jedi, Hubert 4,974.00 Kaden, Hadef 5,340.20 Pancer, Dion 4,254.00 Sanchez, Maria 5,393.00 Scarff, Heidi 4,825.50 • Add two new rows using the data in the table below: Employee Rate Hours Dep. YTD Soc. Sec. Ho, Lee 25.50 6.00 7 250.00 Mil, Tyrone 31.50 32.50 5 5,394.00 • Enter row headings as follows: “Totals” in cell A11, “Average” in cell A12, “Highest” in cell A13, “Lowest” in cell A14, “Social Security Tax Rate” in cell A16, “Medicare Tax Rate” in cell A17, Federal Tax Rate in cell A18, “State Tax Rate” in cell A19, and “Max.
