2. Center the title (East End Building Materials) over the entire table and change the font to 14 Aharoni,

3. Center the sub title (Bonus Pay Summary) over the entire table and change the font to 12 pt Aharoni.

4. Insert an extra row below the sub title but above the column headings. In that row, type your name and center it. Choose the font and size you would like

9. Adjust the Performance Rating column heading using the Wrap Text so the heading is on two lines.

10. Adjust the Bonus Amount heading to display two lines

11. Select the numbers in the Performance Rating column and center those numbers within the column.

12. In Cell E6 insert an AND formula that will determine if the employee is eligible for a bonus. An employee is eligible if Sales exceeded Quota AND if the performance rating was greater than 6. (Hint: The end result should only be three TRUE’s once the formula is pulled down.)

13. To figure the bonus amount for those employees who ARE eligible, use all three boxes of IF formula. In the first box, response in the Eligibility should be equal True (no quotation marks needed). If true, then the second box should be a calculation of two percent of the sales amount. If the statement is FALSE, (third box) the bonus amount is 0. (Hint: Only those employees with True in the Eligible column should have Bonus Amount, the rest are 0.)
