Excel is all about crunching numbers, so most of your
worksheets will include numeric values. Although you
will often use numbers by themselves as part of a
database or table, many of the numbers you enter
will be used as the inputs for the formulas you build,
as described in Chapter 6.
You can enter whole numbers (such as 5 or 1,024),
decimals (such as 0.25 or 3.14), negative numbers
(such as -10 or -6.2), percentages (such as 6% or
25.9%), and currency values (such as $0.25 or
$24.99). To get the most out of Excel, you need to
know how to enter these numeric values.
