New Trick on Excel, March, 16/09

Today we did mental math and then Mr. Max wanted to show us a new way of solving problems on Microsoft Excel. We had a problem trying to solve how big a woman's garden could be given the size of her fence. Go to excel and type in the formula for length x width. After that put that number in another column (vertically or horazontally) and then highlight them with your mouse. There should be a black dot in the bottom right hand corner of your highlighted boxes, click and drag the length down as far as you would like, and do the same for the width. Then scroll down and find the biggest area number and that will give you the answer.
