What is the purpose of the vlookup function?
The vlookup function in MS Excel is a powerful tool to look up information in a table to find additional information associated with the piece of data available. For example, the vlookup function will return the address from a table that has a list of names in the first column and addresses in another column when the name is the search term.
Describe the process of frying a chicken egg to someone who has never cracked and cooked an egg before.
This is a step by step procedure for frying an egg so the yolk is still a bit runny (over easy). 1. Acquire an egg from the store or local farmer and place it on the counter. Eggs will roll so be sure to secure it so you do not have to clean up the broken egg from the floor after it rolled off the counter. 2. Take a frying pan out of the cupboard and place it on the stove and a spatula from the drawer or where it is stored. 3. Get a bowl and a plate out of the cupboard and place it on the counter next to the stove. 4. Pick up the egg in one hand and gently tap the egg on the counter nest to the bowl. Tap very gently. You will see multiple cracks traveling away from the impact area. The extent of the cracks should be sufficient for your to be able to place two fingers into the indent and pry the egg apart. If the crack is not sufficient you will have to tap it on the counter again. If the impact is too strong the contents of the egg will begin to come out onto the count and you may need to try again with another egg. 5. Pry the egg apart and pour the contents into the bowl and place the egg shell into the garbage can. 6. Inspect the egg in the bowl and remove any egg shell fragments. 7. Apply heat to the frying pan by turning on the stove to a medium heat setting. 8. Place a teaspoon of butter or a cooking lubricant of your choice into the pan. Allow the lubricant to heat to a liquid state and distribute it evenly over the surface of the frying pan. 9. Pour the egg in the bowl onto the heated frying pan. 10. When the runny clear portion of the egg turns white the egg is ready to turn over. 11. Turn the egg over using the spatula. 12. Using the spatula scoop the egg out of the frying pan and place on the plate. The time the egg cooks after it is flipped over determines how runny the yolk (yellow part of egg) will be. Scoop out after a couple of seconds will keep most of the yolk runny. Heat on the second side to suit your taste. 13. Turn off the stove and remove the pan from the heat source. Do not put the hot pan directly on the counter, place on a hot pad or a cooler place on the stove to cool. This is the complete process of frying an egg. There are additional steps required to eat and cleaned up the mess but that is another procedure.
