an is a built in formula that uses arguments to calculate information. is FUNCTION
In a spreadsheet a built-in formula is called a function.
It is a matter of compromise and arguments for and against are weighed.
This question is difficult to answer as "suspension bridge" is a very loose term. Ancient people from South America and the Himalayas have used rope suspension bridges to span chasms since ancient times and there are arguments about who first designed/built the first modern bridges.

A function is a built-in formula in Excel designed to do a particular task. Arguments are values that you provide to a function to do its task, like cell address that hold numbers that you want to use for the function. For example, the numbers and addresses in the following SUM function are arguments: =SUM( A2:A5, 7, 800, B18 )
A formula is statement written by the user to be calculated. Formulas can be as simple or as complex as the user wants. A formula can contain values, references to cells, defined names, and functions. All formulas must start with the equals sign. =1+2+3 A function is a piece of code designed to calculate specific values and are used inside formulas. Functions to sum values, calculate a trigonometric cosine, and to calculate the current time are built into excel. Additional functions can be defined using Visual Basic. Functions are typed alongside parenthesizes, where in the arguments if any are listed in between. To use functions in a formula, for example =COS(3.14) will return the calculated cosine. =NOW() returns the current time. =SUM(1+2+3) *2 will multiply the sum by 2
The main arguments for the expansionists were territorial expansion, natural resources i.e. lake, tundras, forests, oceans, ports, etc. Thus, this strengthened and built the power of the country.
