The Microsoft Excel SUMX2PY2 function calculates the sum of the squares of corresponding items in the arrays and returns the sum of the results. The SUMX2PY2 function is a built-in function in Excel that is categorized as a *Math/Trig Function*. It can be used as a worksheet function (WS) in Excel. As a worksheet function, the SUMX2PY2 function can be entered as part of a formula in a cell of a worksheet.

**Syntax**: SUMX2PY2( array_x, array_y )

The SUMX2PY2 function syntax has the following arguments:

**Array_x**Required. The first array or range of values.-
**Array_y**Required. The second array or range of values.

**Example**: Let’s look at some Excel SUMX2PY2 function examples and explore how to use the SUMX2PY2 function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel:

**Syntax**: =SUMX2PY2 (A2:A8,B2:B8)

**Result**:

Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following SUMX2PY2 examples would return:

**Syntax**: =SUMX2PY2 (A3:A8,B3:B8)**Result**: 231

**Syntax**: =SUMX2PY2 (A4:A8,B4:B8)**Result**: 211

**Syntax**: =SUMX2PY2 ({2,2,3,1,4,4,5},{1,2,3,3,2,4,4})**Result**: 134

**Syntax**: =SUMX2PY2 (A2:A4,{2; 3;1})**Result**: 43

**Syntax**: =SUMX2PY2 (A2:A5,{2;3;1;2})**Result**: 63

**Syntax**: =SUMX2PY2 (A2:A6,{2;3;1;2;3})**Result**: 97

**Note**:

- The arguments should be either numbers or names, arrays, or references that contain numbers.
- If an array or reference argument contains text, logical values, or empty cells, those values are ignored. However, cells with the value zero are included.
- If array_x and array_y have a different number of values, SUMX2PY2 returns the #N/A error value.
- The equation for the sum of the sum of squares is
