The spreadsheet you create must include labels, numbers, formulas (using at least five different functions) and a graph on a separate worksheet. You cannot use an Excel template for this assignment. You must create the file from scratch.
Imagine the start-up costs for a new business. One student dreamed about a business that would make custom surfboards, so he did web research (and some guessing) on the type of equipment needed, advertising budget, raw materials, labor for artists & other employees, his own salary. The actual data (whether realistic or fantasy) is less important than the technical uses of a variety of formulas, graphs, and formats. Predict the value of at least 3 items if prices increase by 5% in the second year of business.
