Set up a spreadsheet to track labor costs for the given scenario below. This assignment will give you practice in setting up a
basic spreadsheet with calculations and then linking that data to another tab (worksheet). You will also build upon the output from this assignment in future
modules as you learn more concepts about spreadsheet functionality.
First, create an Excel spreadsheet and name the document “Labor Hours.” Label the first tab of the document Data. Then, complete the following steps:
- In the Data tab, create a table with the following information:
a) Employees’ names
b) Each employee’s hourly rate
c) The number of hours per day for five days for each employee
- Use basic formulas to calculate the following:
a) The total amount of hours each employee worked for five days
b) The labor cost for each employee
c) The total labor cost for the project
- Within the same document (workbook), set up a separate tab labeled Data Link. In this tab, set up a blank table and populate the table by linking the
cells to the data from the table you created in the Data tab.
Note: For this part of the assignment it may be tempting to simply copy and paste the table and formulas from the Data tab. However, it is important
that you learn to link data from one tab to another. In the real world, you could have a spreadsheet with multiple tables on multiple tabs all pulling from
the same dataset. If you copy data instead of linking it, you will have to update every table. However, if you link the data, all of the tables will
automatically update if any of the data changes.
Hint: On your separate worksheet, if you click on any cell that is importing data, you will see the name of the original worksheet (the name on the tab),
followed by an exclamation point, before the cells are listed. For example: sheet1!A2.
You are examining labor costs for a construction project using eight employees:
The eight employees’ names are: Smith, Rodriquez, Daniel, Eli, Lee, Kim, Buster, and Green.
Each employee worked eight hours a day for five days.
The employees’ wages per hour are as follows:
o Smith: $8.95
o Rodriguez: $11
o Daniel: $14
o Eli: $16
o Lee: $19
o Kim: $20
o Buster: $25
o Green: $40
One of the main reasons of the collapse of the Roman Empire was the over expenditure on the military to constantly fund wars abroad. In order for the Romans to invade and conquer other provinces they had to spend heavily on their legions. The Roman armies and supply lines became over-stretched resulting in thousands of soldiers being recruited and deployed from Rome into other territories as invaders or defenders. They also depended on soldiers to defend the borders of the lands they had conquered from barbarian attacks which resulted in the increased manufacturing of weapons and more money being spent on soldiers. High military spending left the Romans with very limited resources for other essential government projects such as the building of more public houses and the development of roads and aqueducts as well as leading to inflation. The over-expenditure on the military led the citizens of Rome to refuse the policies and laws enforced by the government and riots were commonplace in Rome during its last century. Due to the Roman citizens growing distrust of the Empire less people volunteered to join their armies which forced the military to hire common criminals and non-Roman mercenaries. The government raised taxes to aid their military expenditure which added to the low morale of the Roman population with every citizen losing a third of their weekly wage. The money raised to spend taxes was wasted on soldiers who constantly had to be replaced until the Romans could no longer afford to send large garrisons of troops abroad leaving their own borders poorly defended and vulnerable to attacks. The non-Roman mercenaries were too proud to serve a weakening empire and they began to conquer parts of the Empire as the Romans were unable to afford to send detachments and reserves to reclaim these areas. The city of Rome was left very poorly defended due to the deployment of troops to other provinces within the Empire which were defeated and taken by the barbarians making it considerably easier for them to conquer Rome. In order to ensure their loyalty, the wages of the soldiers were doubled and they were often promised discharge payments such as land or money. The military also spent loads of money on the transport of food and grai>GET ANSWER
