# Excel 2019 In Practice – Ch 2 Independent Project 2-5

I need support with this Excel question so I can learn better.

### Independent Project 2-5

These instructions are compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Mac operating systems.

San Diego Sailing keeps data about its fleet of rental and charter boats. One of the sheets is missing a piece of data and another sheet has circular reference errors. You will complete work on these sheets, calculate projected rates for each boat, and build basic statistics about past rentals.

*Skills Covered in This Project*

- Create and copy formulas.
- Use formula auditing tools.
- Set mathematical order of operations.
- Use relative, mixed, and 3D cell references.
- Use
*COUNTIF*and*SUMIF*functions. - Build an
*IF*formula. - Insert the
*TODAY*function.

- Open the
*SanDiegoSailing-02**.xlsx*workbook. - If the workbook opens in
*Protected View*, click the Enable Editing button so you can modify it. - The file will be renamed automatically to include your name. Change the project file name if directed to do so by your instructor, and save it.
- Review a formula.
- Click the New Prices sheet tab and review the
*Formula bar*. - Click cell D5. The formula begins with 1+D4.

- Click the New Prices sheet tab and review the
- Edit and copy a formula with mixed references.
- Edit the formula in cell D5 to show D$4instead of “D4.” The formula should multiply one plus the percentage value in cell D4 by the current rate on the Fleet sheet ($H5). With an absolute reference to row 4 and column H on the Fleet sheet, you can copy the formula down the column (Figure 2-105).

- Copy the formula in cell D5 to cells D6:D19without formatting to preserve the border.
- Select cells D5:D19 and drag the
*Fill*pointer to copy the formulas to cells E5:E19. - Click cell E6. The formula is adjusted to use the percentage value in cell E4 in place of cell D4. Note also that the reference on the Fleetsheet ($H6) is adjusted to show the correct row.

- Edit the formula in cell D5 to show D$4instead of “D4.” The formula should multiply one plus the percentage value in cell D4 by the current rate on the Fleet sheet ($H5). With an absolute reference to row 4 and column H on the Fleet sheet, you can copy the formula down the column (Figure 2-105).
- Build a formula with mixed references.
- Click cell F5 and type =(1+ to start the formula.
- Select cell F4 and make it an absolute reference to the row but not the column.
- Type )* for the closing parenthesis and multiplication.
- Click cell I5 on the Fleet sheet, and make the reference absolute for the column but not the row (Figure 2-106).

- Copy the formula down column F without formatting to preserve the border.
- Format cells F5:F19 as Currency and then copy cells F5:F19 to cells G5:G19.

- Build an
*IF*function formula.- Click the Fleet sheet tab and select cell G5. Rental boats with a stove in the galley must seat 8 or more people.
- Create an
*IF*function in which the*logical_test*argument determines if there are 8 or more seats. - Use Yes for the
*value_if_true*argument. UseNo for the*value_if_false*argument. (If you type the formula, enclose the text arguments within quotation marks.) - Copy the formula to cells G6:G19 without formatting and then center the data in column G.

- Insert the
*TODAY*function in cell B21. Format the date to show the month spelled out, the date, and four digits for the year (January 1, 2020). - Create a division formula.
- Click the Bookings sheet tab and select cellF5. Calculate average revenue per passenger by dividing the fee by the number of passengers.
- Build the division formula.
- Copy the formula in cell F5 to cells F6:F19.

- Create and copy a
*COUNTIF*function to count bookings by boat manufacturer.- Select cell D27.
- Start the
*COUNTIF*function from the*Statistical*category by clicking the More Functions button in the*Function**Library*group. - Use cells $C$5:$C$19 as the
*Range*argument. - Set a
*Criteria*argument that will select all boats in the “Beneteau” group. The criteria is ben*. If you type the formula, include quotation marks. - Copy the formula in cell D27 to cells D28:D30.
- Edit the criteria in each copied formula in cells D28:D30 to reflect the boat make.

- Create and copy a
*SUMIF*function to calculate total revenue by boat make.- Select cell E27.
- Start the
*SUMIF*function with cells $C$5:$C$19 as the*Range*. - Set the
*Criteria*argument to ben*. - Set the
*Sum_range*argument to cells $E$5:$E$19. - Copy the formula in cell E27 to cells E28:E30.
- Edit the criteria in each copied formula in cells E28:E30 as needed.

- Complete formatting.
- Apply the Currency format to all values that represent money.
- Format the labels in cells A1:A2 as 18 point.
- Select cells A1:F2 and click the Alignmentlauncher [
*Home*tab,*Alignment*group]. Center the labels across the selection. - Merge and center the label in cell C25 over cells C25:E25 and format it at 16 points.
- Bold and center the labels in rows 4 and 26.
- Select cells A4:F19 and apply All Borders. Do the same for cells C25:E30.
- Center the page horizontally.

- Save and close the workbook (Figure 2-107).
- Upload and save your project file.
- Submit project for grading.
