The structure of an Excel Function

The SUM function, one of the math and trig functions, adds values. You can add individual values, cell references or ranges or a mix of all three.

For example:

  • =SUM(A2:A10)

Two of the more useful yet simple functions that Microsoft Excel offers are 'MIN' and 'MAX'. These two functions find the smallest and largest value in an array. It could be an array of constants (literal values) or an array of cells (range of cells).

Working with the AVERAGE() Function

The COUNT function counts the number of numbers in supplied values. Values can be items, cell references, or ranges. For example, =COUNT(1, 2, "apple") returns 2. And COUNT(A1:A10) will count the number of numeric values in the range A1:A10. 

Working with the COUNT() Function

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. When you click AutoSumExcel automatically enters a formula (that uses the SUM function) to sum the numbers.
