SUM Formula – **So, what we are going to learn today:**

__1 SUM Formula__

**There are 4 Ways to Apply SUM Formula****.**

Adding value through Basic Formula of Sum, we have to prepare data like given in Picture. Prepared a data of different Brand under which LEDs & Mobiles are sold. Prepared a data on which formula will be applied in 4 different ways

**Way No 1: Adding Cells one by one**

It is the easiest way to add cells but its not professional way but yes if you are new learner you should know this technique, as you never know when it can help you. Also it can help you when the cells are not in Continuous series.

**Way No 2: Sum Formula**

Use basic SUM formula as given in Picture & Select your data horizontally or Vertically, Here I have used formula Vertically. Formula will always start from = sign, like given in Picture write

=SUM(CELL RANGE).

**Way no 3: ****AUTOSUM**

**The third Technique, can be used when you have forgotten the shortcut key by using AUTOSUM Option given in Home tab, as Shown in Picture. First step is to Select the empty cell where you want your total should be displayed, then click on AUTOSUM options then on SUM as shown in Picture**

**Way No 4: SHORTCUT KEY**

The sum formula can also be accessed by typing **ALT + =** sign in your sheet & it will automatically create a formula **of sum in a continuous range. It is the easiest way to lessen your work load as it ends the use of mouse or arrow keys.**

__2 SUMIF__

**SUMIF**** function is among the most commonly used functions in excel. **

**For single criteria – we use SUMIF**

**For Instance, In our data, we used different Brands selling LEDs & Mobiles, earlier we Calculated Total sales of all brands, Now If we want to calculate Sales for only One brand i.e. for MI, we can use this formula very easily. First Step is to start Formula with equal to sign =SUMIF, select Range of Brand Name, Then Select the Name of the Brand you want the sales for, & then Select the Amount Range as Given Below in Picture with formula generated.**

** **__3 SUMIFS__

**SUMIF****S function is among the most commonly used functions in excel. **

**For multiple criteria’s – we use SUMIFS**

**For Instance, In SUMIFS we will Calculate Total of only MI brand & only Mobile Sales, i.e. under different brands, we need to calculate only sales of MI brand and only Sales of Mobile under MI, **

**First Step is after writing =SUMIFS, we have to select Preference Range i.e., what we want as result, select price range, **

**Second step is to select brand range, as we have to filter Brand Name **

**Third Step, select brand we want to configure i.e., MI **

**Fourth Step, then Range of Products (Second Filter) **

**& Fifth Step, finally select which product’s sale you want to Calculate, as shown in Picture.**
