    Question re multiple functions in a formula...

    Hi!

    I'm new and I love this site! I am currently taking Excel but neither my professor nor my text explained how to make a formula where the formula has two different operations, (e.g., division then addition) within the same formula.

    For example, in Y6, create this formula: Divide P7 by the sums of H4,I4, and J4.

    I tried this formula but I think it's wrong:

    =P7/(H4,I4,J4)

    Can someone help with this formula?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi,

    Welcome to the forum. This is obviously an homework question, so make you need to think how you would sum H4:J4 first then may be you can work it out yourself?
