Statistical functions are used when a mathematical process is required for a range of cells, such as summing the values in several cell locations. For these computations, functions are preferable to formulas because adding many cell locations one at a time to a formula can be very time-consuming.

Logical functions are used when you want to carry out more than one comparison in your formula or test multiple conditions instead of just one.

Creating 3D referencing in Excel within a formula involves referring to the same cell or the same range of cells, on different worksheets.
