TOPIC : TABULATION EXERCISES ON SIMPLE COLUMN WORK WITH AT MOST THREE COLUMNS

Tabulation involves arranging items in columns. In a tabular arrangement therefore,

column, if horizontally.

A tabular work has the following features:-

1 Top and bottom margins are equal, if vertical display.

2 Left and right margins are equal, if a horizontal display.�

3 Equal spaces between the columns, usually odd number spaces such as 3, 5 or 7�

���spaces.

4 Left and right margins, being equal, the table is centred over the page

NOTE

����horizontal calculation.
