Creating a Simple Formula
You can use a simple formula to add, subtract, multiply, or divide two numbers. An ex-
ample of a simple formula is =A1+A2, which adds the contents of cells A1 and A2.
Type an equal sign ( = ) in the cell where you want to place the formula an-
swer.
Type the cell address (such as A1 ) of the first cell to include in the formula.
This is called the cell reference.
Type an operator to indicate the action to perform: plus ( + ), minus (–), mul-
tiply ( * ), or divide ( / ).
