Basic Math

Let's try something simple, shall we? If you haven't already done so, open a new spreadsheet. In cell A1, type Course Average. Select the text in the field, change the font style or size (by clicking on the font selector in the Object bar), then press <Enter>. As you can see, the text is larger than the field. No problem. Place your mouse cursor on the line between the A and B cells (directly below the Formula bar). Click and hold, then stretch the A cell to fit the text. You can do the same for the height of any given row of cells by clicking on the line between the row numbers (over to the left) and stretching these to an appropriate size.

Now move to cell A3 and type in a hypothetical number somewhere in the range of 1–100 to represent a course mark. Press <Enter> or cursor down to move to the next cell. Enter seven course marks so that cells A3 through A9 are filled. In my example, I entered 95, 67, 100, 89, 84, 79, and 93. (It seems to me that the 67 is an aberration.)
