Boolean

An infield fly in baseball is called to prevent the defense from recording an easy double play. When an infield fly occurs, the batter is automatically out once the ball is touched by a fielder or hits the ground and the baserunners must go back to their bases (though they may "tag up" if they wish). An infield fly occurs when the following conditions are met: (1) there is a force out at third base (this means that there are runners on first base and second base), (2) there are not two outs, and (3) the batter hits a catchable fly ball to the infield or the shallow outfield. The table below highlights 30 baseball scenarios. Complete the tasks below to determine if the umpire should declare an infield fly.

9

Use the AND function with appropriate arguments in cell H11 to determine if there is a force out at third base. There is a force out at third base if "Runner on 1st" and "Runner on 2nd" are both "Yes".

2

1

Copy your function in cell H11 and paste it down to complete the "Force @ Third" column of the table.

7

Use the OR function with appropriate arguments in cell I11 to determine if there is a "Fly Ball". There is a "Fly Ball" if a "Catchable Fly Ball [is] Hit to" the "Infield" (cell E11 is "Yes") or "Shallow Outfield" (cell F11 is "Yes").

3

Use the AND function in cell K11 to determine if all of the conditions are met for an infield fly to be declared. These conditions are: there must be a force out at third (H11 = TRUE), there must be a catchable fly ball it to the infield or shallow outfield (I11 = TRUE), and there must not be 2 outs (J11 = TRUE).

IF

Beverly sells donuts at the local bakery. Donuts cost $.50 each unless customers buy a dozen or more. When customers buy at least a dozen they cost $.40 each. Beverly earns a commission based on her sales performance. Because the bakery makes so much money on beverages, she earns 10% commission (based on the total sale) when a customer buys a drink. She also earns commission on her sales. She earns 2% on each sale that totals more than $10. She earns 1% commission on each sale that totals more than $5 (but less than $10). She does not earn commission on each sale that totals $5 or less (though she will earn the beverage commission). Complete the table below to help Beverly calculate her commission based on the 50 customers she helped this morning.

5

Use an IF function in cell E18 to calculate the price to charge per donut for order 1. A customer is charged $.50 per donut unless they buy a dozen or more. In this case, they are charged $.40 a donut. Refer to the appropriate price in cells C11 and C12 for your "value_if_true" and "value_if_false" arguments. Use absolute and relative references when appropriate.

1

Copy your formula in cell E18 and paste it down to complete the "Price/Donut" column of the table.

5

Use an IF function in cell H18 to calculate the commission rate for the total sale for order 1. The commission rate is 2% for all sales that total more than $10 and 1% for all sales that total more than $5. No commission is paid on sales that total $5 or less. Reference the threshold levels (cells F13 and F14) in your logical tests for your IF function and the commission rates (cells G13 and G14) as your "value_if_true" and "value_if_false" arguments. Use appropriate relative and absolute references.

4

1

Copy your formula in cell H18 and paste it down to complete the "Rate" column of the table.

5

5

Use an IF function in cell J18 to calculate the commission earned for beverages for order 1. The beverage commission is 10% of the total sale if the customer buys a beverage. If the beverage sale amount (cell D18) is greater than 0 the beverage commission equals the sales total (cell G18) multiplied by the beverage commission rate (cell G12). Otherwise the beverage commission is 0. Use appropriate relative and absolute cell references.

Copy your formula in cell J18 and paste it down to complete the "Beverage" commission column of the table.

2

Beverly always treats herself to a donut if her daily commission is more than $40. Use an IF function in cell K13 to determine if she should buy herself a donut. Cell K13 should contain the value "Yes" if her total commission in cell K11 is more than $40. Otherwise cell K13 should contain the value "No"

Built-tough Boards sells outside bulletin boards used to display community information on the outside of buildings. They sell blue and red bulletin boards which they will deliver regionally up to 1000 miles. While they offer a discount for purchasing in bulk, they require customers to buy at least two bulletin boards at a time. The table below lists 25 recent sales. Each order lists the color of the boards ordered, the number to be shipped with the order, and the distance of the delivery in miles. Complete the table by using the VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP functions in Excel to calculate the number of days it will take for delivery, the delivery price, and the price of the signs for each order.
