simple workflow formula assistance

I am trying to mark a check box (Rank) to be true when a certain custom field (Question_ID = "abc"). 


What I am trying to accomplish is creating a formula workflow to say, When question_ID equals "abc" for example then make Rank check box true. 


Question_ID data type: Number 

Rank data type: Checkbox
