**Define the following:**

**1) Spreadsheet**- A spreadsheet is grid of rows and columns used to store, organize and analyze numerical or financial data.

**2) Worksheet**- A An Excel worksheet is a single spreadsheet that contains cells organized by rows and columns. A worksheet begins with row number one and column A.

**3) Cell**- An intersection of a row and column in a worksheet is called cell.

**4) Cell Pointer**- The cell pointer in Excel is the active cell or the selected cell and is highlighted by a bolder rectangle. The location of the cell pointer is listed below the tool bar to the left of the formula bar.

**5) Name box**- Name box is located above the worksheet area, which displays the cell reference or the name of the active cell. Active cell is the cell where cell pointer is placed.

**6) Formula bar**- Formula bar is located above the worksheet area on the right of the Name box and displays the contents of the active cell. It can also be used for entering or editing data and formula.

**7) Cell References**– A cell reference in a formula is the address of a cell, or the addresses of a range of cells. It tells the program where to look for the values or data to be used in a formula. There are two types of cell references:

**i) Absolute Reference**: It is the cell address in the formula that is fixed. They do not change if you copy a formula from one cell to another. It is given by preceding both column and row number by the dollar sign($). Example- Formula =$A$1*B1, If it is copied down a column it will change to =$A$1*B2

**ii) Relative Reference**: It automatically changes when the formula is copied to a new location. The changed cell address will be relative to the address of the cell containing formula. Example the formula =A1*B1 is copied down a column it will change to =A2*B2

**Answer the following:**

**1. What are functions? List some functions and their usage.**
