You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create the following range names:

  • Storeys - referring to G2:G99
  • Metres - referring to H2:H99
  • Cost - referring to I2:I99
  • Cost_per_Storey - referring to J2:J99
  • Cost_per_Metre - referring to K2:K99

The quickest way to create several range names is by using the Create Names option:

You can use the range names in the functions that you need to use:
