We deal with numbers every day. For example, we budget our money for our food, fare, clothing, and other expenses.

Calculating numbers is a skill we can easily do and apply in our daily lives, but what if you need to calculate larger numbers and bigger sums such as in banks, department stores, supermarkets, grades, or payrolls? This is where a spreadsheet program take part as it helps in computing and organizing data.
