Is QUOTIENT the same function as INT Comment from Joe Beniacar @ 4/28/2014
But it rounds down, while QUOTIENT removes the fractional part that would increase it above that integer...?

Is QUOTIENT the same function as INT Comment from Anonymous @ 4/27/2014
Is QUOTIENT the same function as INT?

Reply from Richard Rost:

No. QUOTIENT returns the integer portion of a division (the opposite of MOD). INT just rounds.

TRUNC vs ROUNDDOWN Comment from Anonymous @ 4/27/2014
Hi Richard, can you think of some examples (+ or -) of when TRUNC is different than ROUNDDOWN (for the same num_digits)? Could they be the same function? Thanks!

Reply from Richard Rost:

Aside from the fact that you can specify a number of digits with ROUNDDOWN, I don't see any difference, no. Usually you have to be careful because some functions will treat negative numbers differently, but with these two that's not the case.

skills tests Comment from Laurie J. @ 5/3/2013
Do you have any sample tests where we can check our skills on these classes?

Reply from Richard Rost:

I used to have a whole set of tests for my older Excel 2003 lessons. I was in the process of re-writing them for 2010, but got busy with other projects. It is high on the TO-DO list.
