- In addition to using absolute references in some formulas…and the standard relative references which are most common,…sometimes you will need to use…what are called mixed references in formulas.…In this worksheet here, we have just four items…down the left-hand side.…And we need to distribute these…to our five different regions here.…So, some of the math you can probably do in your head…in this simple example.…But, let's set up the situation so that we really need…to only write one formula right here.…Rather than writing one formula for here and one for here…or possibly writing formulas for each row separately.…
Let's begin by simply clicking on a single cell…and imagining if we only needed a formula for this cell,…we can simply multiply these two cells.…And in no particular order.…So, =C4*B5,…or the reverse order, we're going to get the same answer.…However, if we copy this formula downward,…Excel, in effect, repeats the concept.…It says, in effect, "I see you've got a formula…"that's multiplying the cell above by the cell to its left."…
