In cell B4, create a function that totals Jan through Dec sales for Sales Calls. 4. In cell B5, create a function that totals Jan through Dec sales for Activity Companies
5. In cell B7, create a formula that adds the annual totals of all four categories using cells B2, B3, B4, and B5 which will give you the total annual revenue for the Bahamas Cruise Line. 6. In cell C2, create a function that displays the average for online reservations from Jan through Dec. Repeat this for the other three categories of revenue. 7. Save the file.
