You need a calculator to do various mathematical functions many orders of magnitude faster than you could do it on paper.

You need a spreadsheet to do the work of many calculators simultaneously.

A spreadsheet is a matrix of rows and columns. The intersection of any given row and any given column is called a "cell".

In a spreadsheet, you can assign relationships among rows, columns, and cells to other rows, columns, and cells. These relationships are usually mathematical.

If you were to lay out a table to calculate how much it would cost a city to say, pave parks and playgrounds for more parking and entered all the relative data into a spreadsheet matrix, the spreadsheet would calculate a lot of variables based on just a few inputs and give you a fast overview.

Beyond that, if you wanted to see how much you would save by paving all parks but only some playgrounds, all you'd have to do is change the value in "playgrounds", and the spreadsheet would spit out a whole new data sheet based on all the inter-variations defined in the spreadsheet.

A spreadsheet is kind of the "Swiss Army Knife" of calculators...  ;-)
