Try writing your first formula! To let Excel know that a formula is coming, you need to write an equals sign (=).

`=formula here`

A formula can be as simple as `1 + 1`

, which would look like:

`=1+1`

If you write this in a cell and press `Enter`

, the value 2 will appear (because that’s the answer to 1+1).

Now calculate 32+57 in cell **A1 **below:
