  2. Calculation and Formulas:  Spreadsheets offer powerful calculation capabilities. Users can perform various mathematical operations using built-in formulas, reducing the need for manual calculations and minimizing errors. No more racking your brain doing the math.
  3. Financial Management:  Spreadsheets are commonly used for budgeting, financial planning, and tracking expenses. Formulas can be employed to calculate totals, percentages, and other financial metrics. Be better prepared at tax time or decision-making.
  4. Collaboration & Sharing:  Spreadsheets can be easily shared and collaborated on in real-time, allowing multiple users to work on the same document simultaneously. This fosters teamwork and enhances productivity.
