Excel File without an IF function

We want to use an =IF function to calculate the parking charge.

In cell C4, create an =IF function to calculate the parking charge.  Use the following to help you:

  • If the hours parked are less than or equal to 2 hrs, display a message saying Free parking
  • If the hours are greater, the parking fee is Hours Parked * Parking Charge

Don't forget to create range names for the parking fee and the the threshold, and to use these in your =IF formula.

Copy the =IF function down the rest of the column to calculate the other parking fees

Change the threshold and the parking fee as shown below to check everything works:

Parking charges

When you change the input cells the parking fees should change.
