For simpler functions, this is the best way to do it, as it allows for 
fine-grained testing.

For some complex functions, the tests will load up an Excel file with the 
input data pre-set up, and probably the formula already there and 
calculated by Excel. They then evaluate the formula, and ensure they get 
the same answer as Excel did
