Entering Formulas
One of the reasons Excel is such a valuable tool is that you can assign a formula to a cell,
and Excel will calculate the result. Consider, for example, what would happen if you had
to multiply 60.45 by 19.5 and then manually enter the product for Gross Pay, 1,178.78, in
cell E4. Every time the values in cells C4 or D4 changed, you would have to recalculate
the product and enter the new value in cell E4. By contrast, if you enter a formula in cell
E4 to multiply the values in cells C4 and D4, Excel recalculates the product whenever
new values are entered into those cells and displays the result in cell E4.
A formula in a cell that contains a reference back to itself is called a circular
reference . Excel often warns you when you create a circular reference. In almost all
cases, circular references are the result of an incorrect formula. A circular reference
can be direct or indirect. For example, placing the formula =A1 in cell A1 results in
a direct circular reference. An indirect circular reference occurs when a formula
in a cell refers to another cell or cells that include a formula that refers back to the
original cell.
To Enter a Formula Using the Keyboard

4. Tax % (column H) = (Federal Tax + State Tax) / Gross Pay
5. Net Pay (column I) = Gross Pay – (Federal Tax + State Tax)
