b. MPG City

c. MPG Highway

d. Average MPG

e. Maintenance/Year

f. Registration Fee

g. Insurance/Year

h. Amount to Borrow

i. APR

j. Years

k. Loan Payment

l. Gas

m. Maintenance/Month

n. Insurance/Month

o. Total Monthly

Hints:

• Select cells B7:F24 and use Excel’s Create from Selection command to create named ranges for each

row using the labels at the left side of the range as the names.

• Open the Name Manager and review the names Excel created. Notice that any spaces or special

characters in the label names are converted to _ characters in the names.

• To avoid typos as you create each formula, try using Formula AutoComplete to select the correct

range name.
