## Formula Arithmetic

• Negation Operator: -A converts A to a negative number
• Percent Operator: A% converts A to a percentage value by dividing it by 100
• Exponentiation Operator: A ^ B raises A number to the power of B
• Multiplication Operator: A * B multiplies A by B
• Division Operator: A / B divides A by B
• Subtraction Operator: A - B subtracts B from A
• Concatenation Operator: "A" & "B" concatenates the text value A and B into a single text value "AB"

## Formula Comparisons

• Equal Condition: A = B is TRUE when A is equal to B
• Not Equal Condition: A <> B is TRUE when A is not equal to B
• Greater Than Condition: A > B is TRUE when A is greater than B
• Less Than Condition: A < B is TRUE when A is less than B
• Greater Than or Equal Condition: A >= B is TRUE when A is greater than or equal to B
