Chapter 8. Building a Worksheet with Excel > Creating a Simple Formula

Creating a Simple Formula

A formula calculates values to return a result. All formulas begin with the equal sign (=) followed by arguments—values (such as 147 or $10.00) and cell references (such as B3:F20)—connected by arithmetic operators (+, -, *, and /). You enter and edit formulas just as you do labels and values—in the formula bar or in the cell. By default, Excel displays the results of the formula in a cell, but you can change your view of the worksheet to display formulas instead of results.
