Excel’s SUMIF function allows you to sum a range of cells based on a given criteria. You can use it to quickly sum a range of cells that meet certain conditions, such as cells that contain a specific value or cells that are greater than or less than a certain value.

Here’s how to use the SUMIF function:

- In a cell, type the following formula:
`=SUMIF(range, criteria, [sum_range])`

- Replace
`range`

with the cell range that you want to check for the criteria. - Replace
`criteria`

with the value or expression that you want to use as the criteria. You can use a number, text, or a logical expression as the criteria. - Replace
`[sum_range]`

with the cell range that you want to sum. This argument is optional, and if you omit it, the SUMIF function will use the`range`

argument as the sum range.

Here’s an example of the complete formula: `=SUMIF(A1:A10, ">50", B1:B10)`

This formula would sum the values in cells B1:B10 if the corresponding cells in A1:A10 are greater than 50.

You can also use the SUMIF function to sum cells that contain a specific value or text. For example:

`=SUMIF(A1:A10, "apple", B1:B10)`

This formula would sum the values in cells B1:B10 if the corresponding cells in A1:A10 contain the text “apple”.
