=INDEX(A1:C4,3,2) :Calculates intersection in the range A1 TO C4 for third row, second column. Returns David's age 28.
=INDEX(A1:C4,2,1) :Calculates intersection in the range A1 TO C4 for second row, first column. Returns Sally as output.
=INDEX(A2:C3,1,3) :Calculates intersection in the range A2 TO C3 for first row, third column.Returns Sally's salary 6600.
=INDEX(A1:C4,0,2) :Displays the entire Age column in the range A1 to C4. Returns 32,40,28,28 as output.
