When I try to create an equation it just won't calculate!! (it usually just lists the equation exactly as I typed it (eg. A/11) What part / column do I need to highlight, how and where do I type the equation and how can I get my answers to appear in the above locations?

Put an = in front of the formula. Otherwise it is treated as text, not a formula.

=A/11
