- [Instructor] On this worksheet,…which is the work in progress,…we see some shapes off to the right.…There's an octagon, extended octagon.…There's a rectangle to the right.…There's no title above the data.…Perhaps that's where one of these belongs.…There's also a chart here as well.…These are generally referred to collectively as objects.…Also you might notice that in the worksheet itself…occasionally we'll see a red triangle…in the upper right-hand corner.…That's a comment.…We see what the comment says here.…There's also one over in cell I10.…And these are used simply to point out…certain oddities in the data or may be to ask a question.…
