In addition, determine how you would extract;overtime hours from a calculated value of "Total Hours" using a;conditional formula.;In addition, your supervisor will need this weekly payroll report on a;weekly basis and instructed you to keep the payroll history of all weeks;within "1" workbook but has allowed you to decide if you would;rather keep the payroll running on one worksheet or by assigning a new;worksheet for each week. Using your knowledge learned in this class;descriptively explain whether you would keep all weekly payrolls in one;worksheet or assigned to new worksheets by week. Defend the approach;you take based on what you have learned in this course.;(Points: 40);Question;2.2.(TCO;3) You currently work for an automotive parts supply store. Your;company is growing and is considering expansion. The company;currently has three locations (North, South, and Central) in one;state. Each parts supply store carries inventory in four;categories. You have been presented with the sales figures for the;last three years for each location and inventory category by store.;Based on this information, you're tasked with analyzing current sales for;each store by category and overall total sales by store and category.;Note;This is a four part question.1.);Explain your approach to setting up your worksheets and organizing the;data.;2.) Explain how you will visually represent the data for the total sales of;the individual inventory categories for each location for the time periods;shown.;3.) Explain how you will visually represent the consolidated data for the;sales of all stores and all inventory categories for all time periods in;one chart or graph.;4.) Once you have finished the above tasks, you plan to send the Excel;workbook to your manager for evaluation. Your manger is presenting;your findings to the Board of Directors for justification for additional;capital expenditures. The visual representations need to be concise;and clearly able to support the requested expenditures. Explain how;you would use the integration features of MS Office to incorporate the;Excel information into other presentation media.;(Points: 40);Question;3.3.(TCO;4) You are given a spreadsheet with daily sales numbers ordered by date;from January 1st to December 31st. You have been tasked with finding the;average sales of each month, then to reorder the months so they are listed;in order from highest to lowest average sales.

XYZ manufactures only one product, the gizmo. It comes in two;sizes, the mini-gizmo and the magna-gizmo. Both are difficult to;manufacture, and consequently, the company closely monitors rejected units.;The company has three locations, each of which produces both the mini and;the magna-gizmos. You are automating the weekly production reports so that;you can easily calculate total production for the entire company each week.;The mini-gizmo is priced at $3.25 per unit. The magna-gizmo is priced at;$7.00 per unit. The unit cost for a reject mini-gizmo is $1.75. The cost;for a reject magna-gizmo is $3.50. Respond fully to the following questions;regarding this task;Note;This is a two part question.;1.);The managers will e-mail their weekly reports to you on Monday of the;following week. You will then produce the summary report. Explain the;process for doing this. Give a sample formula to total the number of;mini-gizmos produced by the entire company in a week.;2.);Each week, you will present the combined report to your boss, who wants to;see both the summary and the individual sheets for each location. You want;to add a header with the date and your name to each page. What is the;easiest way to do this? Explain the process.;(Points: 40);Question 5.5.(TCO 9) You have been tasked;with analyzing an extremely large amount of data and to ultimately produce;a report to share with the Board of Directors.
