The formula tab allows us to select from over 300 Excel functions. These functions are grouped into these categories: financial, logical, text, date & time, lookup and reference, math & trig, statistical, engineering, cube, information and compatibility.

A formula is an expression that operates on values in a range of cells or a cell. For example, =A1+A2+A3, which finds the sum of the range of values from cell A1 to cell A3.

These formulas return a result, even when it is an error. Excel formulas enable you to perform calculations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

# __FUNCTION__

__FUNCTION__

__ __

__Definition:-__

Functions are predefined formulas that perform calculations by using specific values, called arguments, in a particular order, or structure. Functions can be used to perform simple or complex calculations. You can find all of Excel’s functions on the Formulas tab on the Ribbon: Excel function syntax.

**The most frequently used functions in Excel are:**

**AutoSum:**

If you need to sum a column or row of numbers, let Excel do the math for you. Select a cell next to the numbers you want to sum, click AutoSum on the Home tab, press Enter, and you’re done.

Example: Autosum [=sum(b2:c3)]

**MATCH function:**

The MATCH function searches for a specified item in a range of cells, and then returns the relative position of that item in the range.

example, if the range A1:A3 contains the values 5, 25, and 38, then the formula =MATCH(25,A1:A3,0) returns the number 2, because 25 is the second item in the range.
