### What is the correct formula of sum?

• A.

=sum(F9;F1)

• B.

=sum(F9:F1)

• C.

-sum(f9,F1)

Correct Answer
B. =sum(F9:F1)
Explanation
The correct formula for summing a range of cells in Excel is "=sum(F9:F1)". This formula uses the "sum" function, which adds up the values in the specified range of cells (from F9 to F1 in this case). The ":" between F9 and F1 indicates a range of cells to be included in the sum. The other options provided, "=sum(F9;F1)" and "-sum(f9,F1)", do not follow the correct syntax for the sum function in Excel.

### What does SUMIFS function do?

• A.

Add up cell values based on a condition

• B.

Add all the numbers in a range of cells

• C.

Returns a subtotal in a list or database

• D.

All of Above

Correct Answer
A. Add up cell values based on a condition
Explanation
The SUMIFS function in Excel allows you to add up cell values based on certain conditions. It is used when you want to sum values in a range that meet multiple criteria. By specifying the range to sum, as well as the criteria range and criteria, you can calculate the sum of values that meet the specified conditions. This function is useful for performing calculations on large data sets and extracting specific information based on given criteria.

### Cell A5 shows a figure of 645123.875. Which of the following functions will display to the number is thousand?

• A.

=Round(A5,-3)

• B.

=Round(A5,-2)

• C.

=Round(A5,-1)

Correct Answer
A. =Round(A5,-3)
Explanation
The function =Round(A5,-3) will display the number in thousands. The -3 as the second argument in the Round function indicates that the number should be rounded to the nearest thousand. Therefore, the function will round 645123.875 to 645000, displaying the number in thousands.

Correct Answer
B. False

### Which is the correct way to take out the percentage?

• A.

=450*550/100

• B.

=550/450*100

• C.

=450/550*100

Correct Answer
C. =450/550*100
Explanation
To calculate the percentage, you need to divide the part (450) by the whole (550) and then multiply the result by 100. This formula gives you the proportion of the part in relation to the whole, expressed as a percentage. Therefore, the correct way to take out the percentage is =450/550*100.
