I often use this for summing columns.

| Column | Column |
|--------+--------|
| a      |    1.2 |
| b      |      3 |
| c      |   4.56 |
|--------+--------|
|        |   8.76 |
#+TBLFM: @>$2=vsum(@-I..@-II);%0.2f

This does last row (@>$2), and the sum between dividers, and outputs
to fixed precision.
