## Other Functions That You Can Use

### Statistical Functions

There are over 150 other functions that can be applied in Excel. See the Appendix for a complete list. Some of the useful ones include:
=AVERAGE(range) Average of numbers in a range of cells

=COUNT(range) Count of number of values in a range of cells

=MAX(range) Maximum value in a range of cells

=MIN(range) Minimum value in a range of cells

### The IF Function - Getting Conditional Answers

You can use the =IF function to give different results depending on the circumstances. For example a salesman may receive a bonus if his sales reach a certain value.
The =IF function takes the following format:
=IF(THIS IS TRUE, PUT THIS IN THE CELL, OTHERWISE PUT THIS IN THE CELL)

So here's an example:

The formula in cell C3 (shown on the entry line above) is saying:
IF B3 (BORIS’ SALES) IS GREATER THAN THE QUALIFYING AMOUNT THEN PUT THE WORD “BONUS” INTO CELL C3 OTHERWISE PUT THE WORDS “NO BONUS” IN THE CELL.
Text

If you want text to appear as one of the results (as in the above example) you must put the text in quotes.
