### A multiplication of cell C3 and Cell C4 ,used in a spreadsheet, would look like:

• A.

C3 X C4

• B.

=C3XC4

• C.

=C3*C4

• D.

C3*C4

C. =C3*C4
Explanation
The correct answer is =C3*C4. This is the correct formula to multiply the values in cell C3 and C4 in a spreadsheet. The asterisk (*) is the multiplication operator in most spreadsheet software, so using it between the cell references C3 and C4 will calculate the product of the two cells. The equal sign (=) at the beginning indicates that this is a formula and not just a text entry.

### To find the average value of a cell range from A1 to A5, you could use the following formula:

• C.

=Average(A1:A5)

• D.

=Ave(A1:A5)

C. =Average(A1:A5)
Explanation
The correct answer is =Average(A1:A5). This formula calculates the average value of the cell range from A1 to A5 by summing up the values in the range and dividing it by the number of cells in the range. It is the most efficient and accurate way to find the average value in Excel.

### PEMDAS stands for the order of operations-- Parends (brackets), Exponents, Multiply-Divide, Add-Subtract. If you type =A1+10/B1 + 20 into a spreadsheet, where A1 is 20 and B1 is 10, the answer it will show is:

• A.

1

• B.

41

• C.

31

• D.

21

B. 41
Explanation
The correct answer is 41. According to the order of operations (PEMDAS), we start by evaluating any parentheses or brackets, but there are none in this equation. Next, we evaluate any exponents, but there are none here either. Then, we perform any multiplication or division from left to right. In this case, we have 10 divided by B1, which is 10 divided by 10, resulting in 1. Finally, we perform any addition or subtraction from left to right. We have A1 (20) plus 1, which equals 21, and then we add 20, resulting in a final answer of 41.
