(:description Conditional statements can be implemented into a spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel to change results based on inputs:)

The following tutorial is an introduction to Excel conditional statements using the IF command and comparison statements such as those shown below.

 '''Operator'''
 <    -  less than
 <=  -  less than or equal to
 >    -  greater than
 >=  -  greater than or equal to
 ==  -  equal
 <>  -  not equal to

Certain functions such as AND, OR, XOR, and NOT can be used to combine, select, or reverse the outcome of conditional statements. These logical operations change the results based on input data.

 '''Function'''
 IF  -  select which result to return based on logical condition
 AND  -  return TRUE if both statements are TRUE
 OR  -  return TRUE if either statement is TRUE
 NOT  -  return the opposite of the input TRUE/FALSE
 XOR  -  exclusive OR returns TRUE when both inputs are different

Cells may also be formatted differently based on the cell contents. The following video tutorial demonstrates logical operations with a number guessing game.
