Which kind of formula?

I believe by "formula" he actually means how the columns are in fact computed. And of that, I have no idea

Solution 1

Method 1)
SELECT [name], [definition]
FROM sys.Computed_columns

Method 2) with table name
SELECT obj.[name] AS [TableName], col.[name] AS [ColumnName], col.[definition] AS [Formula]
FROM sys.Computed_columns AS col
    INNER JOIN sys.objects AS obj ON col.object_id = obj.object_id
