### How does an Excel spreadsheet know that =10/12 is a formula and not the date October 12?

• A.

The equal sign (=) signals it.

• B.

The division (/) sign signals it.

• C.

Dates cannot be shown that way.

• D.

It would not know.

A. The equal sign (=) signals it.
Explanation
The equal sign (=) is used in Excel to indicate that the following characters are part of a formula. When Excel encounters the equal sign, it knows that it needs to interpret the characters as a mathematical expression rather than a date. Therefore, when =10/12 is entered into an Excel spreadsheet, it recognizes it as a formula and calculates the division, resulting in the value 0.8333.

### It is best to write formulas using cell references so that a spreadsheet

• A.

Has no hidden information.

• B.

Has all correct values.

• C.

Can be updated easily.

• D.

Can be more easily graphed.

C. Can be updated easily.
Explanation
Writing formulas using cell references allows for easy updating of the spreadsheet. When formulas are written using specific values, any changes in those values require manual adjustments in each formula. However, when cell references are used, updating a value in a single cell automatically updates all the formulas that reference it. This saves time and reduces the chances of errors. Additionally, using cell references makes it easier to understand and modify the spreadsheet as it becomes more complex.

### When working with statistics, a spreadsheet application is often preferred to electronic calculators because

• A.

It allows the user to create graphs to represent data

• B.

Formulas used in a spreadsheet are re-usable which makes spreadshets very efficient

• C.

One's work can be saved for future use and even future editing

• D.

All of the above are true

D. All of the above are true
Explanation
A spreadsheet application is often preferred to electronic calculators when working with statistics because it allows the user to create graphs to represent data. This visual representation can make it easier to understand and analyze the data. Additionally, the formulas used in a spreadsheet are re-usable, which makes spreadsheets very efficient. This means that once a formula is set up, it can be easily applied to other data sets without having to manually input the formula each time. Lastly, one's work can be saved for future use and even future editing, allowing for easy access and modification of the data. Therefore, all of the above statements are true.

• A.

+

• B.

/

• C.

=

C. =
Explanation
Every formula in mathematics starts with the symbol "=", which is the equality sign.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### What formula would you use to add A1 and A2 together?

=A1+A2
Explanation
The formula =A1+A2 is used to add the values in cell A1 and A2 together. This formula utilizes the plus sign (+) as the arithmetic operator to perform the addition operation. The equal sign (=) at the beginning of the formula signifies that it is a formula and not a regular text entry. By typing this formula in a cell, the sum of the values in A1 and A2 will be displayed in that cell.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### What would a formula look like?

• A.

2.38+3.588.25

• B.

(C12:B12)

• C.

=3.65+ (3.65*0.03)

• D.

*A9+B9+C9=

C. =3.65+ (3.65*0.03)
Explanation
The given answer is a formula that calculates the sum of 3.65 and the product of 3.65 and 0.03. This can be represented as "=3.65+ (3.65*0.03)". The formula adds the value of 3.65 to the result of multiplying 3.65 by 0.03.

### What is the main function of any variable ?

• A.

• B.

To keep track of data in the memory of the computer

B.  To keep track of data in the memory of the computer
Explanation
The main function of any variable is to keep track of data in the memory of the computer. Variables are used to store and manipulate data during the execution of a program. They allow programmers to assign values to a specific location in the computer's memory and retrieve or modify those values as needed. By using variables, programmers can store and access data efficiently, making it easier to perform calculations, make decisions, and control the flow of a program.

### It is the process of removing errors found in the program.

• A.

Editing

• B.

Compiling

• C.

Debugging

• D.

Running

C. Debugging
Explanation
Debugging is the process of identifying and removing errors or bugs found in a program. It involves analyzing the code, identifying the cause of the error, and making the necessary corrections to ensure the program runs correctly. Debugging is an essential step in the software development process as it helps improve the functionality and reliability of the program. It is different from editing, which involves making changes to the code, and compiling, which converts the code into machine-readable instructions. Running refers to executing the program.
