All calculations should be performed on the spreadsheet. Is it advantageous for me just to type the corresponding formula in the cell and show the correct figure only? Or is it a need to show how the figure come from the related formula which I need to present it again in the figure nearby? That means both the correct figure and it’s associated formula can gain credits.
Also, in case of incorrectly setting the formula, would there be still steps credits gained?January 27, 2023 at 11:01 am #677465Ken GarrettKeymaster

Just put the formulae in each relevant cell. The marker will be able to see the formulae.
A printed model answer has to show the formulae separately because it is printed, not in a spreadsheet, so if not shown as above you would not know what lies behind the calculations.
