### 1. Apply Simple Mathematical Expressions

We can use simple algebraic mathematical expressions in Excel to sum or add rows in Excel.

**Steps:**

- Below we have the rows with values in them.
- For this, we need to calculate the content of the rows in cell
**C11**.

- Then select cell
**C11**and enter the following formula and press**Enter**:

`=C5+C6+C7+C8+C9`

- Hence, after pressing enter, you will notice the total summation of the rows in cell

**C11**.

- Then select cell
**C11**and enter the following formula and press**Enter**:

`=SUM(C5:C9)`

- Hence, after pressing enter, you will notice the total summation of the rows in cell

### 3. Addition of Non-Contagious Rows

What are you going to do if the rows that you want to check are not next to each other? To do that, we can use** the SUM function**. Which allows separate summation of cells.

**Steps:**

- We have the
**Student’s**name and their names in the range of cell**B4:B9.** - And we thus need to estimate the sum of these rows in cell
**C11**.

- We already did that in the previous method, in this one we are going to add rows that are not contagious to each other.
- Then select cell
**C11**and enter the following formula and press**Enter**:

`=SUM(C5,C7,C9)`

- Hence, after pressing enter, you will notice the total summation of the rows in cell

**Steps:**

- We have the
**Student’s**name and their marks in the range of cell**B4:B9.** - And we thus need to estimate the sum of these rows in cell
**C11**.

- Moreover, in this method, we must add rows based on set conditions.
- For this, select cell
**C11**and enter the following formula, and press**Enter**:

`=SUMIF(C5:C9,">80")`

- Hence, after pressing enter, you will notice the total summation of the rows in cell
**C11**.

- And this is how we add the rows in Excel using the
**SUMIF**formula.

**C11**.

- Here, we are going to sum them using
**the SUM function**, but in a different manner. - Moreover, we will not add the use of summation by function, instead, we will use the
**Autosum**feature. - Then select cell
**C11**and enter the following formula and go to**Home**>**Editing**>**Autosum**. - Hence, after pressing enter, you will notice the total summation of the rows in cell
