1. Open the spreadsheet entitled Excel Training Sept 08
2. Work with Sheet 1 – First rename it to PSSA Data.
a. Resize columns
b. Wrap text; alignment

Less T Lane 4.07 mins 3.45 mins 3.37 mins 3.30 mins

C2, D2, E2, F2)] to create a column called Name
d. Then hide columns B, C, D, E, F
e. Insert a column between Trial 3 and Race Time – call it Average Trial Times
f. Find the average of the 3 trials [=average(g2,h2,i2)]
g. Then create a graph of the trials.
h. Next create a graph of the average trial and the race time to see how their trials compared to their
actual race time. Who won the race?
