Excel will needs to know the cell which you want to add up. Look at the column Monday, we have numbers in Monday column, 2 in B3, 1 in B4, 1 in B5 and 3 in B6. So we want to add up these numbers. For this, click inside cell B8 because we want answer in this cell. Click in cell B8 and then click in formula bar to write formula. Because we want to add up all, for this first write sign of equal (=) in the formula bar the write the formula like this:

=B3+B4+B5+B6
