Q8. What is the total shipping cost of all orders sent by Delivery Truck?

Hint: Use the SUMIF() function here.

View
To calculate the total shipping cost of all orders sent by Delivery Truck, you can use the SUMIF() function with the criteria “Delivery Truck” on the Shipping Cost column.

Q9. If you wanted to know the range, or the difference between the highest and lowest value, of the shipping costs in this dataset, which formula could you use?

View
=MAX(H2:H2003)-MIN(H2:H2003)

Q10. What is the average shipping cost (to 2 decimal places) of all orders sent by Delivery Truck?

View
To calculate the average shipping cost of all orders sent by Delivery Truck, you can use the AVERAGE() function with a filter or criteria to select only the rows with “Delivery Truck” in the appropriate column.

2

Q2. Given the formula

=IF(A1<10, “low”, IF(A1<20, “middle”, “high”))

If the value of A1 is 10, what will the formula return?

View
If the value of A1 is 10, the formula:

=IF(A1<10, “low”, IF(A1<20, “middle”, “high”)) will return: middle In this formula, if A1 is less than 10, it returns "low." But if A1 is greater than or equal to 10, it goes to the next IF statement and checks if A1 is less than 20, which is true for the value 10. Therefore, it returns "middle." [/expand]
