# How to Combine the IF and OR Functions in Google Sheets

To combine the IF and OR functions in Google Sheets, you can create a formula that evaluates multiple conditions using the OR function and then provides a corresponding output based on the result of the IF function. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do this:

- Open your Google Sheets document.
- Determine the conditions you want to evaluate and the desired output for each case.
- Use the OR function to evaluate multiple conditions. The syntax for the OR function is:

`=OR(condition1, condition2, ...)`

- Use the IF function to provide the desired output based on the result of the OR function. The syntax for the IF function is:

`=IF(logical_expression, value_if_true, value_if_false)`

- Combine the IF and OR functions in a single formula. For example:

`=IF(OR(condition1, condition2), value_if_true, value_if_false)`

- Press Enter to apply the formula to the selected cell.

## Example: Combining IF and OR Functions

Let's say you have a list of students with their scores for three subjects - Math, Science, and English. You want to determine if a student has passed or failed, considering they have passed if they have scored 50 or more in at least two subjects.

Here's how you can combine the IF and OR functions to achieve this:

- Assume the scores are in columns B, C, and D, and you want to display the result (Pass or Fail) in column E.
- Click on cell E2 to enter the formula.
- Combine the IF and OR functions as follows:

`=IF(OR((B2>=50)*(C2>=50), (B2>=50)*(D2>=50), (C2>=50)*(D2>=50)), "Pass", "Fail")`

- Press Enter to apply the formula to cell E2.
- Click on the bottom right corner of cell E2 and drag it down to apply the formula to the other rows.

This formula will check if the student meets any of the three conditions (Math and Science >= 50, Math and English >= 50, or Science and English >= 50) and returns "Pass" if true, and "Fail" otherwise.
