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.

Your task for this exercise is to create this simple calculator in Excel:


Note that you won't be able to do any formatting (or at least, this exercise certainly won't ask you to).


To do this import the openpyxl module, then create a new workbook, populate it as shown, save it and close it.  Some syntax to help you:

Operation How to do it
Create a new workbook workbook_variable = openpyxl.Workbook()
Referring to the current sheet worksheet_variable =
Changing a cell value worksheet_variable.cell(row,col).value = ?
Saving a workbook
Closing a workbook workbook_variable.close()

Check that your Excel workbook has been created OK (and that your calculator works!), then close your program down.
