Case 8-1Evaluate the formula =AND(G2=”FT”,M2>=1) based upon the information provided. What value is returned assuming that G2 contains the value PT and M2 contains the value 2?

FALSE

Case 8-1Evaluate the formula =AND(G2=”FT”,M2>=1) based upon the information provided. What value is returned assuming that G2 contains the value FT and M2 contains the value 2?

True

Case 8-2Your boss in the human resources department asks you to write a function that calculates the length of time that employees have been with the firm, using the DATEDIF function. Assume that C2 contains the hire date for a given employee and that cell \$AE\$2 contains the cut-off date against which to compare the hire date to determine length of service. For one service recognition program, you need to calculate the length of service in complete months. What is the correct formula?

=DATEDIF(C2, \$AE\$2, “m”)
