  13. 13. Test question 1 Every formula in Excel starts with an equal sign. (Pick one answer.) 1. True. 2. False. Get to know Excel 2010: Create formulas
  14. 14. Test question 1 Every formula in Excel starts with an equal sign. Answer: 1. True. From simple to complex formulas, an equal sign starts every one. Get to know Excel 2010: Create formulas
  15. 15. Test question 2 What is the first rule of math operator precedence? (Pick one answer.) 1. Take care of exponents (roots and powers) first. 2. Divide before you add. 3. Take care of anything in parentheses or brackets first. Get to know Excel 2010: Create formulas
  16. 16. Test question 2 What is the first rule of math operator precedence? Answer: 3. Take care of anything in parentheses or brackets first. Calculate whatever is in parentheses or brackets first. Then go on to Exponents, followed by multiplication and division (working from left to right), and then addition and subtraction (working from left to right). Get to know Excel 2010: Create formulas

  18. 18. Test question 3 Which part of this math problem will Excel calculate first: =30/5*3? Answer: 1. Divide 30/5. Divide 30/5, which leaves you with 6*3, which equals 18. Get to know Excel 2010: Create formulas
  19. 19. Test question 4 If you want to add the values that are in cells C1 and C2 (93 and 14), why would you use cell references in the formula (=C1+C2) instead of just writing the formula like this: =93+14? (Pick one answer.) 1. The formula is more professional looking. 2. The formula will be more accurate. 3. The formula result will automatically update when cell values change.

  20. 20. Test question 4 If you want to add the values that are in cells C1 and C2 (93 and 14), why would you use cell references in the formula (=C1+C2) instead of just writing the formula like this: =93+14? Answer: 3. The formula result will automatically update when cell values change. You can update the cell values without having to change the formula. As each cell value changes, the formula result automatically updates. If you typed the values themselves into the formula, you’d have to revise the formula every time you changed the values.

  21. 21. Test question 5 You’ve used the SUM function to add the numbers in column C. You want to copy the formula from column C to add the numbers in column D. What kind of cell reference will be in the new formula in column D? (Pick one answer.) 1. Absolute. 2. Mixed. 3. Relative. Get to know Excel 2010: Create formulas
  22. 22. Test question 5 You’ve used the SUM function to add the numbers in column C. You want to copy the formula from column C to add the numbers in column D. What kind of cell reference will be in the new formula in column D? Answer: 3. Relative. When you copy a formula with a relative cell reference from one cell in column C to another cell in column D, the cell reference will automatically update to reflect the new location of the formula.
