**In Computing**

In computing, a formula typically describes a calculation, such as addition, to be performed on one or more variables. A formula is often implicitly provided in the form of a computer instruction such as.

*Degrees Celsius*= (5/9)*(*Degrees Fahrenheit*-32)

In computer spreadsheet software, a formula indicating how to compute the value of a cell, say *A3*, is written such as

*=A1+A2*

where *A1* and *A2* refer to other cells (column A, row 1 or 2) within the spreadsheet. This is a shortcut for the "paper" form *A3 = A1+A2* where *A3* is, by convention, omitted because the result is always stored in the cell itself and would be redundant.
