Learn How to Add in Excel
Welcome to Excel Made Easy, I’m your excel guru. Today I will be teaching you how to add in Excel. Add means how to make totals in excel. I’ll be using a few ways. I will be showing few ways of how to do it. Alright! We have taken an example over here. This example is for the names John, Neel, Max, Mark, Ram and Amit. These are the relative marks in the subjects English, Maths and Spanish. So we want to find out how to total them up. Alright so there are multiple ways of doing it. The first way is, we need to put a is equal to sign over here then type in s u m Sum so what does this say adds all the numbers in a given range so then we open the brackets and the brackets are open by using shift and the relative key in your keyboard and then we need to it’s says number one and number two that means it wants you to select numbers so we are selecting this and then I can put a, and I can select this and then it says number 3 and then I can put another, and then I can select this and then I’ll close bracket and press enter and here is the result. Isn’t it cool? There is another way of doing. I’ll show you how. Is equal to sum open the brackets and rather than selecting specific numbers you select the complete range, a collection of cells is called the range. so I selected this complete range and I’m closing the bracket and pressing enter. So it’s given me the answer this can be done in another way also Alright It’s an variation. is equal to you click on the number which you want to use add this then enter the sign of plus then choose another number then enter the sign of plus and then choose another number and then press enter it gives you the result and there is one more way also and that is using Auto Sum Alright Now you click on Auto sum and it automatically choose a range. See if it is it is highlighted this F10 it is highlighted that meant it is in edit mode so we will select the range that we want and press enter it will give the result like this also and there is one more way What we need to do is we need to select whatever we need to add and if we see below here it gives us the result Sum 176 so you can actually see the result from here and type it. You won’t believe so many people do it even I use it so many times and finally, finally there is a way which is very user friendly which is you go to the formula tab over here and then click on insert function and type in the name of the formula which you want to use which is Sum and then we click on go and then click on Ok and then we choose the number which we want to add like this number 2 is this number 3 is this and then we click on ok and that’s the answer. Isn’t it cool? Well this is a very easy way of doing Sum.
Now comes my magic trick. I’ll show you a magic trick. alright what I’m doing is I am going to do is press 2 keys and it will give me the answer I will press alt and = together and press enter see I’ll do it again Alt , is equal to enter alt is equal to enter alt is equal to enter. This a nice trick. Nice trick to know, It’s the magic trick. So this was the formula how to the formula sum in excel means how to add in Excel.
