ke|at|ve and Abso|ute keferences

A reference ldenLlfles a cell or range on a worksheeL and Lells Lhe formula where Lo look for daLa.

A re|at|ve ce|| reference ls relaLlve Lo Lhe poslLlon of Lhe formula. lor example, a formula ln cell C3 LhaL
conLalns a relaLlve reference Lo Lhe cell 82 would look for Lhe value one cell above and one cell Lo Lhe lefL
of C3. lf Lhls formula were copled Lo cell u7, lL would look for Lhe value ln C6 (one cell above and one cell
Lo Lhe lefL).

An abso|ute ce|| reference always refers Lo a speclflc locaLlon, regardless of where Lhe formula ls locaLed.
1o lndlcaLe an absoluLe reference, place a dollar slgn before Lhe leLLer and/or number of Lhe cell
reference, such as $8$2. ln Lhls exerclse we need Lo keep Lhe cell references absoluLe (unchanged) Lo geL
