    A lot of the time with excel you can select the equation from a list and then it gives you prompts for the certain numbers/cells you need.

    Have you looked around for different video tutorials or short online courses that would give you a better understanding? If not, I’d suggest you have a look, even if you just type in the formula you want to get better at.

    Any problems with that let me know. Good luck

    Here are the official Microsoft docs for excel formulas/functions with examples for each.

    There's not really any point in trying to memorise these functions or their syntax because you can just check the examples in the documentation. It's far more important that you understand how to use them and where they're appropriate to use.
