# How to use AND function in Excel– Formula, Example

AND
function is one of the logical functions in Microsoft excel that is used to
determine the condition provided by the user is True or False. The And function
requires a minimum of 1 condition (and the maximum conditions in And function can
go up to 255) for example the test such as looking for a number that is in cell A1 is
greater than 10 but less than 15. **[=AND(A1>10,A1<15)]**

If
the numbers fall in the conditions, the result we receive is **True**, else **False**.

The
And function is very helpful when it comes to determining multiple conditions being true or not. And function can be combined with IF function, to
provide dynamic outcome, which will also be covered in the latter topic.

## The formula of AND Function

**=AND(Logical1,
[Logical2],..)**

The
**AND function** logical arguments can be further described as –

**Logical
1** – The first logic/condition to be evaluated which is true or false

**Logical
2** – The Second logic/condition to be evaluated.

**Remark
–**

- If all the logic satisfies the condition, the result is True.
- If
even a single logic test does not satisfy the condition, the result we receive is
false.
- If the cell or the array is empty, the values are ignored.
- #Value! Error in end function is observed when the logical range does not contain any logical value.

** **How to
use AND Function – Example

**Example
– 1 **

We have
two numbers 10 & 15, we have to put the condition that the number we have
falls between the given two i.e., 10 & 15, then we can use **AND function **such
as

Once the value is changed to 12 the result is observed to be True.

**Combining
the AND function with Max and MIN function **

Suppose we have the given data as seen

Consider
we have 3 different series, and we have to find out that the Series 1 values
fall between series 2 & series 3, there we can combine MAX/Min function with
AND Function

**Example – 2 Combination of AND Function and IF Function **

Suppose there are 3 students in class if they score more than 40 marks in Maths, Physics & chemistry. They pass the exam and get 5 marks extra in the least scoring subject.
