Use the following scenario to answer the following question(s)
The Blue Sunset Band is planning to record a new album. A major decision to be made is if the band can record the album on their own, or if they should hire a studio to record it with. The fixed cost for recording at the studio is \$100,000 plus the manufacturing cost per CD, which is at \$250. If they record the album in-house, the cost per CD is \$350. They plan to produce 3000 copies of the album regardless of the place of recording. The band plans to record with the cheaper option. Below is the spreadsheet of the Recording Decision.

Answer: To find the order cost associated with the first order for 1345, which is in column E, we have to first use the Match function, =MATCH(1345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,0).
Accordingly, the result will be, =MATCH(1345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,0) = 3.
In order to find the cost associated with this result, we add this function in an Index function. Therefore, the formula for finding cost is, =INDEX(\$A\$4:\$E\$15,MATCH(1345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,0),5). . (1)
The result for this formula is,
=INDEX(\$A\$4:\$E\$15,MATCH(1345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,5) = \$600.
To find the total cost associated with all items under Item number: 1345, we find the last cost associated with 1345 in column E, which is given by the formula =INDEX(\$A\$4:\$E\$15,MATCH(1345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,1),5). . (2)
The result for this formula is,
=INDEX(\$A\$4:\$E\$15,MATCH(1345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,1),5) = \$50.
We then substitute both (1) and (2) into Excels SUM function.
Therefore we get, =SUM(INDEX(\$A\$4:\$E\$15,MATCH(1345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,0),5):INDEX(\$A\$4:\$E\$15,MATCH(1 345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,1),5))
Therefore the total cost for all items under 1345, =SUM(INDEX(\$A\$4:\$E\$15,MATCH(1345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,0),5):INDEX(\$A\$4:\$E\$15,MATCH(1 345,\$B\$4:\$B\$15,1),5)) = \$950.

38) Describe the method of calculating the net present value (NPV) in Excel.
Answer: The Excel function NPV (rate, value1, value2,) calculates the net present value of an investment by using a discount rate and a series of future payments (negative values) and income (positive values). Rate is the rate of discount over the length of one period (i), and value1, value2, are 1 to 29 arguments representing the payments and income. The values must be equally spaced in time and are assumed to occur at the end of each period. The NPV investment begins one period before the date of the value1 cash flow and ends with the last cash flow in the list. The NPV calculation is based on future cash flows. If the first cash flow (such as an initial investment or fixed cost) occurs at the beginning of the first period, then it must be added to the NPV result and not included in the function arguments.

39) What is the Insert function in Excel?
Answer: The easiest way to locate a particular function is to select a cell and click on the Insert function button fx, which can be found under the ribbon next to the formula bar and also in the Function Library group in the Formulas tab. You may either type in a description in the search field, such as net present value, or select a category, such as Financial, from the drop-down box. This feature is particularly useful if you know what function to use but are not sure of what arguments to enter because it will guide you in entering the appropriate data for the function arguments.

40) Explain the different Lookup functions in Excel.
Answer: Excel provides some useful functions for finding specific data in a spreadsheet. These functions are useful in many applications:
VLOOKUP(lookup_value, table_array, col_index_num) looks up a value in the leftmost
column of a table and returns a value in the same row from a column you specify. The table must be sorted in an ascending order.
HLOOKUP(lookup_value, table_array, row_index_num) looks up a value in the top row of a table and returns a value in the same column from a row you specify. The table must be sorted in an ascending order from left to right.
INDEX(array, row_num, col_num) Returns a value or reference of the cell at the intersection of a particular row and column in a given range.
MATCH(lookup_value, lookup_array, match_type) Returns the relative position of
an item in an array that matches a specified value in a specified order.
