formulas within IF function?NoIf the values in cells F3, F4, F5, and F6 are all greater than 100, the formula =OR(F3:F6>100) will always return a value of TRUEFalseAND syntax for finding if A1 is in the 20s=AND(A1>=20,A1<=29)Can you use an array in an OR argument like OR(A3:A6>10)?NoIFERROR syntax=IFERROR(value or formula to check, value if error)What kind of construct is =AND(F3,NOT(OR(G3:H3)))"Only"=AND(NOT(F3),NOT(G3),NOT(H3)) is an example of a(n) _____ construct"None Of"Can relational operators evaluate dates?YesWhen using a IF function, formulas can be used within a Value_if_true or Value_if_false argument if the formula is enclosed within quotation marksFalseRelational expressions are not case sensitiveTrueWith regards to relational operators and text values, a greater value is one that appears earlier in the alphabetFalseNested IF syntax=IF(test, value if true, IF(second test, value if true, value if false)) You can keep putting in more IFs with more tests in place of the "value if false" depending on how many options there areWhen entered in a worksheet named Forecast, does the formula =Costs!B5*C5 multiples the value in cell B5 of the "Costs" worksheet by the value in cell C5 of the "Costs" worksheet?No, must be =Costs!B5*Costs!C5 otherwise C5 comes off of ForecastWhat what is the difference between =ISERR(value) and =ISERROR(value)?ISERR returns true for all errors but #N/A while ISERROR returns true for all INCLUDING #N/AVLOOKUP syntax=VLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,col_index_num,range_lookup) AKA =VLOOKUP(value being searched, array of cells in which the table is located, column number in selection, TRUE for closest without going over and FALSE for exact match)The lookup_value argument in a VLOOKUP or HLOOKUP function is often a number, text, a logical value, or a cell reference...but the lookup_value argument can also be a formulaTrueA data list that categorizes values for retrieval is a(n) _____ tableLookupWhen using a VLOOKUP function, the first column of the lookup table that contains the data you are comparing to your "lookup_value" is/are called theKey dataINDEX MATCH syntax=INDEX(answer_array, MATCH(lookup_value, lookup_array, match_type)) AKA =INDEX(list of answers column, MATCH(what you're searching, list of possible matches column, 0 for exact and 1 for closest)Use the _____ function to retrieve a value from a table based on the row and column numbers specifiedINDEXA LOOKUP function is used to retrieve a value fromA column or rowValues in a "closest match" vlookup table must be sorted in descending order so that the VLOOKUP function can make accurate comparisonsFalsePMT syntax=PMT(rate, nper, pv, [fv], [type]) AKA =PMT(annual interest rate/payments per year, payments per year*term in years, loan amount, ending balance (usually $0), 1=pay at beginning of period and 0=at end)In order to calculate the Future Value of a stream of monthly cash flows which start immediately, and also include an additional lump sum at the beginning of the transaction, the value in the PMT argument should equal the Lump Sum amount plus the monthly

stringLENIn an attempt to find the number of days that elapsed between two dates, you've created a formula with the following syntax: =(Recent_date - Earlier_date).
