# Google Sheets Functions to Simplify Your Budget Spreadsheets

Budget spreadsheets are powerful tools for managing your finances, but with all the data and calculations involved, they can quickly become overwhelming. **These Google Sheets functions help you track your expenses, manage your income, and stay on track with your financial goals.**

## Budget function in Google Sheets

### AVERAGEIF

The AVERAGEIF function helps you calculate the average of a group of numbers in a range of cells that meet specific criteria. The syntax for this function is:

`=AVERAGEIF(phạm vi, tiêu chí, [phạm vi_trung_bình])`

Where range is the range of cells you want to evaluate, criteria is the condition that must be met, and [average_range] is the range of cells for which the average value should be calculated.

For example:

Let's say you're planning to create a budget spreadsheet that tracks various expenses along with their corresponding dates, as in the example below.

To find the average amount you spend on groceries, where "Grocery" is listed in column A and the amount is in column B, use the formula:

`=AVERAGEIF(A:A, "Đồ tạp hóa", B:B)`

You will get the result as 150 VND

### SUMIF

SUMIF allows you to sum values in a range that meet specific criteria. The syntax for the SUMIF function is:

`=SUMIF(phạm vi, tiêu chí, [phạm vi tổng])`

Where range is the range of cells to be evaluated, criteria is the condition to be met, and [sum range] is the range of cells to be summed.

For example:

If you want to calculate your total grocery shopping cost, use the formula:

`=SUMIF(A:A, "Đồ tạp hóa", B:B)`

### COUNTIF

With COUNTIF, you can count the number of cells in a range that meet specific criteria. This makes it easier to track the frequency of certain expenses.

The syntax of the COUNTIF function is:

`=COUNTIF(phạm vi, tiêu chí)`

Where range is the range of cells to count and criteria is the condition that must be met.

For example:

To calculate the number of grocery purchases, use the formula:

`=COUNTIF(A:A, "Đồ tạp hóa")`

### IFS

IFS is a more advanced function that allows you to check multiple conditions. This function is useful for classifying expenses based on different criteria.

The syntax of the IFS function is:

`=IFS(điều kiện1, giá trị_nếu_đúng1, [điều kiện2, giá trị_nếu_đúng2], .)`

Condition1 is the first condition to evaluate and if_true1 is the result if the condition is true. You can add multiple conditions and their corresponding results.

For example:

If you want to categorize your spending based on dollar amount, use the formula:

`=IFS(B2<50, "Thấp", B2<100, "Trung bình", B2>=100, "Cao")`

This formula will label each expense as Low, Medium, or High based on the amount. For example, a $150 grocery purchase would be classified as High, as shown in the screenshot below.

### TEXT

The TEXT function formats numbers as text, useful for displaying numbers in an easy-to-read way (currency or percentage).

The syntax of the TEXT function is:

`=TEXT(value, format_text)`

Where value is the number you want to format and format_text is the desired format (like currency or percentage).

For example:

To display a number as currency, use the formula:

`=TEXT(B2, "VND#,##0.00")`

Since cell B2 contains 150, the TEXT formula displays that number as 150.00VND to clarify that the cell's value represents money.
