9 You would like to show how the number of faculty at the end of MY GUESS: 42
year 10 depends on the quit rate and number of annual hires.
We would like for example, to have cell L10 give the number of

each year. Using the information in the spreadsheets below,
what would be the row input cell for a two-way data table?

answer with =. Please do not put any unnecessary spaces or ()
in your response.
10 Based on the influence chart below, what is the outcome • Profit Profit
measure for this model? • Revenue
• Fixed Cost
• None of the above

11 A university begins Year 1 with 80 faculty. They hire 4 faculty • -ROUND(E9*$E$3,0) -


each year. During each year 10% (rounded to the nearest • +INT($E$3*E9,0) ROUND(E9*$E$
integer) of the faculty present at the beginning of the year leave • -ROUNDUP(E9*$E$3,0) 3,0)
the university. For example, in a year where there are 73 faculty • None of the above
at the beginning of the year, 7 would leave the university at the
end of the year. The university wants to know how many faculty
they will have at the end of year 10. The resulting spreadsheet
can be found below. In cell G9 the first cell address referred to
was cell E9. If the formula is entered in cell G9 and is copied
down to G10:G18, what is it followed by?

12 See the screenshot below. What function can be used in cell G8 • =PRODUCT(G3:G6,H3:H6) =SUMPRODUC
to compute total revenue? • =PRODUCT(G3:G6*H3:H6) T(G3:G6,H3:H6)
• =PRODUCT(G3:H6)
• =SUMPRODUCT(G3:G6,H3:H6)
• =SUMPRODUCT(G3:G6*H3:H6)
• =SUMPRODUCT(G3:H6)
• =MMULT(G3:G6,H3:H6)

• =MMULT(G3:H6)

year 10 depends on the quit rate and number of annual hires. =D18+1*.9
We would like for example, to have cell L10 give the number of
ending Year 10 faculty if we hire 1 faculty member a year and
10% quit each year. Using the information in the spreadsheets
below, what formula would be entered in cell J9?
Please do not put any unnecessary spaces or () in your
response.

14 You are given the three dates shown below. If you add up the 6024
year in which each date occurred and the month in which each
date occurred what is your total? For example, if a date were in
August 2005 the date would contribute 2005 +8 to our total sum.
Enter just the number; e.g., 2780.

17 Suppose we want to highlight the year number for each year • (E5/E4)>1.05 (E6/E5)>1.05
during which sales were at least 5% higher than the previous • ($E$6/E5)>1.05
year. We would begin by selecting the cell range D6:D12 and • (E6/E5)>1.05
choose Conditional Formatting from the Ribbon. Then you would • (E6/E5)>.05
select new rules followed by the Use a Formula option. Finally
you would enter the following formula.

18 In the spreadsheet shown below, we computed profit earned by • Just I (My guess: Just I
selling houses by entering the formula =F8-E8 in cell G8 and • Just I and II and III)
copying it down to G9:G11. We used the word open to denote a • Just III
house that is not yet sold. Unfortunately, when a house has not • Just I and III
yet been sold our spreadsheet shows the #VALUE error, • Just IV
because you cannot subtract the buy price from the word open. • Just I and IV
We would like to "error trap" Column G so that when a house has • Just I and V
been sold the correct profit has been computed and if the house
has not yet been sold a _ will be entered in Column G. How
many of the following formulas could be entered in cell G8 and
copied down to G9:G11 to achieve this goal?
• I. IFERROR(F8-E8,"_ ")
• II. ISERROR(F8-E8," _")
• III. IF(COUNT(G8)>0,F8-E8,"_")
• IV. IFERROR(F8-E8,_)
