Im stuck on # 3 which requires the Nested IF function to determine a minimum price and return a value in a cell. Please advise.


Make a DSS spreadsheet utilizing the following steps:

In Row 1, make a header row with the following labels in bold font:

·        Column A: Vendor Name

·        Column B: Jet Fuel Price

·        Column C: Avgas Price


In Column A, Rows 2 through 6, list the following vendors:

·        ABC Fuel

·        Midwest Fuel

·        Texas Wildcat Fuel

·        KC Fuel

·        Royal Canadian Fuel


In Columns B and C, Rows 2 through 6, enter imaginary pricing values for all vendors and both types of fuel, keeping the range of values between $5.00 and $10.00 for each type of fuel.

Format the cells in Columns B and C, Rows 2 through 6 as "Currency" with two decimal places.

·        Label the cell in Column A, Row 8, "Best Jet Fuel Price" in bold font. Label the cell in Column A, Row 9, "Jet Fuel Vendor" in bold font.

·        Label the cell in Column A, Row 11, "Best Avgas Price" in bold font.

·        Label the cell in Column A, Row 12, "Avgas Vendor" in bold font.


Using Functions and Formulas

1.   Using the MIN function, make a formula for the cell located in Column B, Row 8 that calculates the lowest value for the Jet Fuel pricing available from the five vendors. 

2.   Using the MIN function, make a formula for the cell located in Column C, Row 11 that calculates the lowest value for the Avgas pricing available from the five vendors.

3.   Using nested "IF" functions, make a formula for the cell in Column B, Row 9 that places the name of the "winning" vendor for the "Best Jet Fuel Price."

The following video offers valuable tips on how to create nested "IF" functions:

4.   Select "Align Right" for the data in the cell located at Column B, Row 9.

5.   Using nested "IF" functions, make a formula for the cell in Column C. Row 12 that places the name of the "winning" vendor for the "Best Avgas Price."

6.   Select "Align Right" for the data in the cell located at Column C, Row 12.

7.   Select "all Borders" for the cells in Columns A, B, and C, Rows 1 through 12.
