Create a function called MedalPoints which takes 3 inputs:

  • the number of gold medals won for a country
  • the number of silver medals won
  • the number of bronze medals won

Your function should return the points total for the country, according to the Wise Owl rule that you get 5 points for a gold, 3 for a silver and 1 for a bronze.

How your function should look in the function wizard

Type your function into the Excel worksheet in the Points column and copy it down - you should find that Russia move up to second place, but that the USA are still top with 321 points.

Save your workbook as Points Calculated, then close it down.
