### In the answer box, type the number and then the word, like so: 2. spreadsheet. A 1. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ is used to do every single calculation in the spreadsheet. A formula can be as simple as adding up two numbers in different  2. _ _ _ _ _ or it can be as complex as working out a statistical result from millions of pieces of data collected over months. The reason that formulae are so important is that once you have set them up, they will track any changes that you make in the 3. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. A spreadsheet formula must start with an 4. _ _ _ _ _ _ sign (=). It is the trigger to tell the spreadsheet that a calculation is needed.

Explanation
A formula is used to perform calculations in a spreadsheet. It can be simple, like adding two numbers in different cells, or complex, like analyzing large amounts of data. Formulae are important because they automatically update when changes are made to the spreadsheet. A spreadsheet formula always starts with an equals sign (=), which indicates that a calculation is being performed. Therefore, the correct answer is 1. formula, 2. cells, 3. spreadsheet, and 4. equals.
