## SpreadsheetsA spreadsheet is a tool that helps you do math quickly. It is helpful for keeping records of information too. You will create one Microsoft Excel file to help you make three spreadsheets.
The three images below represent what your pages should look like in Excel before you fill in all the information. |

## SAMPLE SPREADSHEET

The spreadsheet below is a sample of what your spreadsheet could look like when it's finished. You should not use the same items or the same prices. Use items and prices that are for your business. For example, if you have a clothing store, you might be selling T-Shirts, Jeans, Khakis, Shoes, etc.
