This is just a little experiment for me to try out the site and for you to check out your Excell skills.

### You can use text in a formula.

True

• B.

False

A. True

You may use text in a formula when referring to the name of a range: When A1=2 and is named "Cars", you can enter =CARS+3 and the result will be 5. You may also also use text as a logical answer; Using A1=2, the function =IF(A1>0,"TRUE","FALSE") will result as TRUE.

### When creating a chart, you should never include total of the data.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
True, if you include the total it will skew the data with one column, pie slice or point being far greater, 50% of all the displayed data combined, with the actual data you are analyzing only distributed over 50% of the chart.

• 6.

### When sorting, you must highlight the entire column of the column you wish to sort by.

• A.

True

This is false. If you highlight the entire column, it will only sort the highlighted column changing the data for each record. It is only necessary to select the cell at the top of the column when selecting sort criteria.
