5 Create a new worksheet labeled Range Names, paste the newly created range name information in cell A1, and resize the columns as needed for proper display. 5.000
6 On the Forecast sheet, start in cell E3. Complete the series of substitution values ranging from 10 to 200 at increments of 10 gallons vertically down column E. 2.000
7 Enter references to the Total_Production_CostGross_Profit, and Net Profit cells in the correct locations (F2, G2, and H2 respectively) for a one-variable data table. Use range names where indicated. 3.000
8 Complete the one-variable data table in the range E2:H22 using cell B4 as the column input cell, and then format the results with Accounting Number Format with two decimal places. 5.000
9 Apply custom number formats to make the formula references appear as descriptive column headings. In F2, Total Costs; in G2, Gross Profit, in H2, Net Profit. Bold and center the headings and substitution values. 3.000
10 Copy the number of gallons produced substitution values from the one-variable data table, and then paste the values starting in cell E26. 4.000
11 Type $15 in cell F25. Complete the series of substitution values from $15 to $40 at $5 increments. 4.000
12 Enter the reference to the net profit formula in the correct location for a two-variable data table. 4.000
13 Complete the two-variable data table in the range E25:K45. Use cell B6 as the Row input cell and B4 as the Column input cell. Format the results with Accounting Number Format with two decimal places. 10.000
14 Apply a custom number format to make the formula reference appear as a descriptive column heading Wages. Bold and center the headings and substitution values where necessary. 3.000

16 Create a second scenario named Worst Case, using the same changing cells. Enter these values for the scenario: 10025, and 20. 4.000
17 Create a third scenario named Most Likely, using the same changing cells. Enter these values for the scenario: 15025, and 15. 4.000
18 Generate a scenario summary report using the cell references for Total Production Cost and Net Profit. 5.000
19 Load the Solver add-in if it is not already loaded. Set the objective to calculate the highest Net Profit possible. 5.000
20 Use the units sold as changing variable cells. 4.000
21 Use the Limitations section of the spreadsheet model to set a constraint for raw materials. Use cell references to set constraints. 4.000
22 Set a constraint for labor hours. Use cell references to set constraints. 4.000
23 Set a constraint for maximum production capability. Use cell references to set constraints. 4.000
24 Solve the problem. Generate the Answer Report and Keep Solver Solution. 5.000
25 Create a footer on all four worksheets with your name on the left side, the sheet name code in the center, and the file name code on the right side. 4.000
