The gray filled cells define the perimeter of the problem and the print area.
The problem is formatted for whole dollars with comma separations (no cents) except where required.
The display may have “Freeze Pane” invoked so column titles remain visible during data entry.
Negative values may be shown as ($400) or -$400.
Consider using “Split” panes to assist in copy and paste of data.
Much of the exercises and problems can have data entered by the “look to” or “=A34” type formula where cell A34 contains the data to be entered. This precludes typing and data entry errors.
