In this Excel exercise you will create a simple Excel worksheet that will model a simple income statement. In future exercises you will enhance the worksheet by adding additional features. If you are unfamiliar with the features of Microsoft Excel, you should complete a Spreadsheets tutorial before beginning this exercise.

To complete this exercise, you will create two Excel worksheets in an Excel workbook. After starting Excel you should create following table in Sheet 1 of the Excel workbook.
