Enter a function in cell I6 that determines the average salary of all full-time employees. Format the results in Accounting Number Format.

5

Enter a lookup function in cell E5 that returns the tax deduction amount for the number of dependents listed in the cell C5. Use the table in range H13:I17 to complete the function. The maximum deduction is $500.00; therefore, employees with more than four dependents will receive no additional deductions.

6

Use Auto Fill to copy the function down, completing column E. Be sure to use the appropriate cell referencing. Format the data in column E with the Accounting Number Format.

Enter a logical function in cell F5 that calculates employee FICA withholding. If the employee is full-time and has at least one dependent, then he or she pays 7% of the annual salary minus any deductions. All other employees pay 5% of the annual salary minus any deductions. Copy the function down through column F. Format the data in column F with Accounting Number Format.

Ensure that the Facilities worksheet is active. Use Goal Seek to reduce the monthly payment in cell B6 to the optimal value of $6000. Complete this task by changing the Loan amount in cell E6.

12

Create the following three scenarios using Scenario Manager. The scenarios should change the cells B7, B8, and E6.

Good
B7 = .0325
B8 = 5
E6 = 275000

Most Likely
B7 = .057
B8 = 5
E6 = 312227.32

Bad
B7 = .0700
B8 = 3
E6 = 350000

Create a Scenario Summary Report based on the value in cell B6. Format the new report appropriately.

5

13

Ensure that the Facilities worksheet is active. Enter a reference to the beginning loan balance in cell B12 and enter a reference to the payment amount in cell C12.

14

Enter a function in cell D12, based on the payment and loan details, that calculates the amount of interest paid on the first payment. Be sure to use the appropriate absolute, relative, or mixed cell references.

3

15

Enter a function in cell E12, based on the payment and loan details, that calculates the amount of principal paid on the first payment. Be sure to use the appropriate absolute, relative, or mixed cell references.

16

Enter a formula in cell F12 to calculate the remaining balance after the current payment. The remaining balance is calculated by subtracting the principal payment from the balance in column B.

17

Enter a function in cell G12, based on the payment and loan details, that calculates the amount of cumulative interest paid on the first payment. Be sure to use the appropriate absolute, relative, or mixed cell references.

Enter a reference to the remaining balance of payment 1 in cell B13. Use the fill handle to copy the functions created in the prior steps down to complete the amortization table.

3

20

Ensure the Sales worksheet is active. Enter a function in cell B8 to create a custom transaction number. The transaction number should be comprised of the item number listed in cell C8 combined with the quantity in cell D8 and the first initial of the payment type in cell E8. Use Auto Fill to copy the function down, completing the data in column B.

7

21

Enter a nested function in cell G8 that displays the word Flag if the Payment Type is Credit and the Amount is greater than or equal to $4000. Otherwise, the function will display a blank cell. Use Auto Fill to copy the function down, completing the data in column G.
