# SUMSQ

Formulas / SUMSQ
Calculate the sum of the squares of the provided values.
`=SUMSQ(number1,[number2],...)`
• number1 - required, numeric value
• number2 - [OPTIONAL] numeric value

## Examples

• `=SUMSQ(1,2)`

This returns the square of each number added together. In this example, 1 and 2 are squared, then added together. Therefore, the result is 5.

• `=SUMSQ(1,2,3)`

This also returns the sum of squares of each number. In this example, 1, 2, and 3 are squared, then added together. Therefore, the result is 14.

• `=SUMSQ({1,2,3})`

This is the same as the previous example. However, this example uses curly brackets ({}) to enclose the list of numbers. Therefore, the result is also 14.

## Summary

The SUMSQ function adds the squares of its arguments, which can be numbers, names, arrays, or references. All arguments must contain numbers.

• The SUMSQ function takes numerical arguments, which can be hardcoded values, cell references, or ranges.
• The SUMSQ function ignores empty cells and text values, as well as logical values and text values.
