Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

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.

Open the file contained in the folder named above.

In cell C4, create a nested =IF formula to calculate the staff bonus for each staff member.  Use this to help you:

  • If the number of customers helped >=50 the staff member should get a 25% bonus
  • If the number of customers helped >=25 they should get a 10% bonus
  • If the number of customers helped was any less message, the message should says No bonus

Here's what the resulting worksheet should look like:

Nested =IF for formulae and text

Not everyone gets a bonus, sadly!

Remember the nested =IF function has the following structure:

=IF(Condition1, True1, False1 is IF(Condition2, True2, False2))

Lower the thresholds in cells F8 and F9 and the bonus percentage rates to check that your formula works:

Nested IF with text and formulae results

More people get bonuses when you lower the thresholds - hurrah!
