I would like to see how algorithms are applied and used in an excel spreadsheet. I would like to see a simple example if possible.

I don't understand your question. An algorithm is defined as:

"A formula or set of steps for solving a particular problem. To be an algorithm, a set of rules must be unambiguous and have a clear stopping point."

What do you mean by seeing "how algorithms are applied and used in an excel spreadsheet"?

I was asked to apply the algorithms to a spreadsheet. I think the incorrect terminology was used.

I still don't know know what you mean by "apply the algorithms to a spreadsheet". What do you mean by "the algorithms"?

Are you asking how to enter a formula in a cell? e.g.

=SUM(A1:A5)

=VLOOKUP(A1,$B$1:$D$5,3,0)

=IF(A1>0, "Yes", "No")Are you asking how to use VBA (a macro)? e.g.

Sub SumAccount() 'Sum Range and Format Cells On Error GoTo done Set MyRange = Application.InputBox("Select Cells To Sum", Type:=8) With ActiveCell .Formula = "=sum(" & MyRange.Address & ")" .Font.Size = 8 .Font.Bold = False .NumberFormat = "#,##0" .HorizontalAlignment = xlRight End With done: End Sub
