Creating If Statements In Excel

  1. 1. Creating “IF” Statements in Microsoft Excel © 2009 Problem: You have a little brother or sister struggling to learn his/her multiplication facts. You will create a spreadsheet using Excel of 10 multiplication problems. Leave a space for them to type their answer and for an IF statement for feedback on their answer (ex. Wow! Great Job or Sorry! Try again!) Follow the steps below to create your multiplication table. It should look similar to the one below when completed. 1. Begin by opening Excel. 2. Type “Multiplication Facts” in cell A1. 3. Type “Problem” in cell A2 and “Answer” in cell B2. 4. Type out 10 multiplication facts of your choice in cells A3 through A12. 5. Click in cell C3. Select the AutoSum button on the formula bar. 6. Select under “More Functions” the “IF” option and click on OK. Type B3= (the number following B3 should be the answer to the multiplication problem in A3, which in this case is 1 (1 x 1). So it should read B3=1. 7. In the Value_if_true box type Wow! Great Job! 8. In the Value_if_false box type Sorry! Try Again! 9. Select “OK” and then type a wrong answer in B3. In cell C3 the words “Sorry! Try Again! should appear. Try typing the correct answer now. The words Wow! Great Job! should appear. 10. Now complete the project by following the same steps for the other 9 problems. To show me you understand how this works, leave some answer right and enter some of the answers as wrong. 11. As always, make it look as nice as possible, adding borders, clipart, etc. 12. Put a heading (View, Header/Footer) and turn it in. EXTRA CREDIT: You may create a multiplication review for elementary students that I could pass on to our elementary teachers. (ex. Make a table for 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s, 11s, 12s). How many should be done for a free 100? See me and we’ll decide.
