How to Use Excel to Solve Finance and Statistics Problems

Finance and statistics are perhaps the two most challenging subjects that a business student will face. Both of these topics require students to solve complex problems that go beyond the average person's knowledge of mathematics. Fortunately, Microsoft excel has a collection of useful formulas that will help you solve most of these problems with ease. The goal of this post is to provide a few tips on how we can help you take advantage of excel to earn better grades in finance and statistics labs.
