Common Excel Mistakes "Regular" algebra does not work in Excel, when you want to apply a formula multiple times You can't use NAMED variables (by changing a cell address to a particular name) Once a cell has been renamed, that name will become a constant , holding a single value – and it WILL BE the first one you used If you wish to apply a formula several times, you have to use cell addresses in place of the algebraic variables The mistake, in this case, would be to use an algebraic variable name (such as " x ") in a formula Excel will not know what you're talking about!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
