On the Formula tab go to Calculation Options. The criteria in the form of a number, expression, a cell reference, text, or a function that defines which cells will be added.

Changing the cell format never changes the cell content--the value stored in the cell. Blank and text values are ignored. The cells can only be in one state or the other. This sum function simply adds each element of the range and delivers the result as 60.
