6 Chapter 1 Getting Started With Excel This chapter will familiarize you with various basic features of Excel. Specific features which you need to solve a problem will be introduced as the need arises. When working with the examples given, you should be at a computer with an open, blank Excel workbook. Start up Excel using instructions in your local installation of the software. You will see the following screen. Familiarize yourself with the various components of the spreadsheet. Cell Address Menu Bar Formatting Active Cell Formula bar More... ChartWizard Active sheet The screen with a grid you are looking at is called a worksheet. You can click on the tabs below to go to other worksheets. These worksheets are part of a workbook with the file name book1.xls, but you can rename it to any file name when you save your file. If your screen does not exactly resemble the above, don t be concerned. To display all the features shown on this sample worksheet, go to View > Toolbars and check the options for standard and formatting toolbars. 1

7 2 Excel Guide for Finite Math and Applied Calculus Data and Cell References All information in a spreadsheet is entered through data in cells. Each cell has a unique reference given by its column letter and row number. You will notice that the cell reference box above the column headings says A1. The reference of the cell can easily be figured out by locating the column and row where it belongs. To move from one cell to another, you can use the arrow keys or select a cell with a mouse click. You can also type <CTRL>g to go to a specific cell reference. You can work with a range of cells. To select a range, click into the beginning of the range of cells. Hold down the mouse and drag to the end of the range. Release the mouse button. The reference for a range of cells is given by beginning_cell_reference:end_cell_reference Check it out Select the range of cells h42:j48 Select the range of cells b8:d40 In the examples given below, a spreadsheet fragment with illustrative cell reference(s) will often appear. These are given to make the examples easier to follow. You can of course use any groups of cells you desire to work the examples, as long you change the cell references to reflect your setup. Formatting Cells You can type either text or numbers in a cell. Enter some data by first selecting a cell and typing some text or numbers into it. You can use the back arrow to correct the entry. Press <ENTER>. You may then format the cell content as follows: 1 First select the cell in which some data is entered. 2 Choose the style and size of the font by clicking on the font list. 3 Click on the Bold, Italic or Underline option if you wish to format in one of those styles. 4 Click on the left, center, or right justification for text in a cell. 5 If you have entered a number, you may increase or decrease the number of decimal spaces displayed. Check it out Type in some text in a cell and test out the various formatting capabilities. Correcting Cell Entries Once you have entered some data in a cell, and pressed <ENTER>, you may later want to edit it. To do this, press the F2 key. You will see the cursor in the cell. Edit by using the backspace key or by using the mouse cursor. Press <ENTER> to accept the new content. To delete the contents of the cell, select the cell and press the <DELETE> key. If you want to clear the formatting options from a cell, go to Edit > Clear > Format.

8 Getting Started With Excel 3 Adjusting Cell Width When you type in text, you may sometimes exceed the width of the cell. To widen a cell, move the mouse along the column you wish to widen to the row with the heading labels at the top of the worksheet. You will see a symbol looking like <- ->. Holding down the left mouse button, you can now widen the column. Wrapping Text For aesthetic reasons, you may not want text in a cell to be too wide. In this case, you must wrap the text within the width of a cell. After selecting the cell, go to Format > Cells. Click on the Alignment tab and check the Wrap Text box. Inserting Rows or Columns Go to the cell where you want to insert a row or column. Right click the mouse button and choose the Insert option. Click on the appropriate checkbox for inserting rows or columns. Formulas Once you have entered data into cells, you will want to perform some operations with them. Basic arithmetic operators are: Operation Symbol Addition + Multiplication * Division / Subtraction - Exponentiation ^ The usual order of operations holds. Using the above operators, you can write formulas which manipulate the data you have entered in cells. Example 1 Let x = 3. Compute f( x) = x 3 4x. Solution We need to store the x value in a cell. We also need to store the x 3 4x result in another cell. Hence, we can make a simple table as follows. Note that you can enter text into a cell as well. Using a spreadsheet makes it easy to annotate your work. D 1 x f(x) 2 3 =d2^3-4*d2 E

9 4 Excel Guide for Finite Math and Applied Calculus Now, the value of x is contained in the cell D2. The value for f(x) is computed by the formula using the cell reference D2 in place of x. So, the formula for f(x) using cell references is =d2^3-4*d2 (Note: D2 is the same as d2) To enter this in the spreadsheet: 1 Select the cell E2 2 Type the formula =d2^3-4*d2 in this cell 3 Press <ENTER> A formula always begins with an = sign. There should be no space before the = sign and there should be no space between the = sign and the rest of the formula. Now, change the value of x in D2. What happens to the value in E2? Check it out Change f(x) to fx ( ) = 2x Enter this formula in E2 using cell references. Be careful when entering formulas. Let the value in a1 equal some number not equal to 1. What is the output of f(x)=1/(x-1) when incorrectly using the formula =1/a1-1? Compare with the correct formula =1/(a1-1) When you look at a worksheet, you cannot see which cells have formulas and which have numbers. If you want to see all the formulas in the spreadsheet in their respective cells, click Tools > Options. Click on the View tab and check the Formulas box. Close the dialog box, and now your spreadsheet will display all formulas. To go back to the original view, simply unclick the formula box in the View tab. Check it out Display the formula view for the worksheet above. Copying and Pasting Now suppose you want to compute f(x) in Example 1 for x =1,2,3,4,5. You also want to display all these values simultaneously by creating a table. Instead of typing the formula over and over again, we can copy and paste. This is illustrated in the next example. Example 2 Compute f(x) for x=1,2,3,4,5 and display the results in a table. Solution Make columns for x and f(x). Enter the x values that you are interested in: D 1 x f(x) E

10 Getting Started With Excel D E In the cell E2, enter the formula for f(x)=x 3-4x. This gives the following: 1 x f(x) D 2 1 =d2^3-4*d Press <ENTER> after entering the formula, and you will see the value of f(1)=-3 in the cell E2. Since we want to compute the values of f(x) for the other values of x as well, we can copy the formula by following the steps below. E Copying a formula down a column 1 Select the E2 cell in the above table. Press <CTRL>c to copy. 2 Select the rest of the f(x) column, cells E3:E6. Press <CTRL>v to paste. Look in the formula bar for the entries E3:E6 and note that the cell references automatically change to the x-value directly to the left of the y-value. Autofill option Another way to copy the formula down the column is to move your mouse to the lower right hand corner of the cell E2 until you see a small + sign. Then, holding down the left mouse button, drag your mouse down the column to E6. The formulas will be automatically changed to reflect the new f(x)-values. Your table will look like the following, regardless of the method you use to copy the formula: D 1 x f(x) E

12 Getting Started With Excel 7 Example 1 Generate a table of values from -2 to 3 in increments of 0.5. Remark We could of course do this manually, but that would be laborious. Excel can automatically generate this table by using the Fill feature. Solution Steps to create a table of x-values 1 Type a heading label x in cell A1. 2 Type in the first value of -2 in the cell A2. 3 In cell A3, type in the next value of -1.5, since our increments are in steps of 0.5. Now that you have entered a starting value and a value with the increment, Excel can generate the rest of the table. 1 x Select the cells a2:a3. Move mouse to lower right corner until you see a plus sign. Your screen should resemble the following figure: A 5 Drag the mouse all the way down the column to A12. You should now see a filled column of values from -2 to 3 in increments of 0.5, like the one below. A 1 x

13 8 Excel Guide for Finite Math and Applied Calculus A Example 2 Suppose we want to generate x and y values in a table. For example, find for the x-values given in the table above. Solution Follow the steps outlined below. Steps for creating table with x and y values 1 Make a table with x and f(x) column headings. 2 Fill the x-column as directed in Example 1. 3 Next, we need to fill in values for f(x). a The first y-value will have the formula =3*a2-2. Type it into the cell B2. b c 1 x f(x) A 2-2 =3*a2-2 We next fill the entire f(x) column by simply copying and pasting the formula in the B2 cell: Select the B2 cell in the above table. Press <CTRL>c to copy. Select the rest of the f(x) column. Press <CTRL>v to paste. Note that the cell references automatically change to the x-value directly to the left of the y-value. 4 Alternatively, we could have used the Autofill method outlined in the Copying and Pasting section. 5 Your table should resemble the one below B f( x) = 3x 2 A 1 x f(x) B

14 Getting Started With Excel 9 A B Check it out Change f(x) to f(x)=-x Remember to recopy the new formula down the column. Sometimes, Excel does not recognize the (-) sign in front of an expression. To be on the safe side, enter the formula as =(-1)*a1^2+4. Create a table of x and y values for f(x)=2x-4 for values of x between -2 and 3 in increments of 1. Some Common Errors Grayed out option boxes This happens when you try to do something with a cell, but are still working with that cell. Click out of the cell and click back in and now select the option. #REF, #####, #DIV/0 and other error messages #REF usually indicates an erroneous cell reference. Check your formulas in formula view if necessary. ##### means that the number did not fit in the cell. Simply widen the cell to suitable width. #DIV/0 means you re dividing by zero. Check your formulas and their references. #NAME? usually indicates an invalid name of a function. Described menu option does not appear in pull-down menu This is not really an error, but rather a feature in Excel If you do not see a menu option listed in the pull-down menu, you should double click on the menu title or click on the double arrows pointing down - it will then list the complete set of options.
