# Excel formula question

I have a total of pounds sold, and 4 ranges to pick from if it equals the criteris. i.e., If the pounds are below 1 #, it equals 0, if lbs are between 2 #'s it equals 40, if lbs are between 2 other #'s it equals 150, and if lbs are greater than the highest #, it equals 200.

I've tried IF statements, and can get the first condition to work, however, when I add another, it errors with #value.

What formula do I need use?

Mmm...could be tricky......you could try the argument IF THEN ELSE in the functions list, in conjunction with additional columns to carry out the intermediate calculations, then you can hide those columns. perhaps you could also make use of conditional formatting. any problems come back to me.....could you place a snapshot of the sheet you are designing ? just highlight the cells , copy them, and use edit "paste special", tick values when pasting into this forum.

### What are the formulas in grading the grades uisng microsoft excel

Formulas are used to specify calculations based on values in designated cells. Excel supports basic calculations as well as statistical, trigonometric and other specialized functions.

Formulas used in Excel must follow a certain syntax.

1. All formulas begin with an equals sign (=).
2. Some formulas use operands such as +,-, *,/ for addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.
For example, the formula =A1+A2+A3 would add the contents of cells A1, A2 and A3.
3. Other formulas refer to different functions such as SUM, AVERAGE and others.
For example, the formula =SUM(A1:A3) would add the contents for the range A1 through A3.
4. Formulas can be combined with operands.
For example, the formula =10*SUM(A1:A3) would add the contents cells A1 through A3 and multiply them by 10.
5. Functions can be nested within each other.
For example, the formula =SQRT(10*SUM(A1:A3)) would take the square root of ten times the sum of cells A1 through A3. When functions are nested, it is important that the number of left parentheses match the number of right parentheses.

### Computer

Any formula in Excel starts with the equals sign ("="). This is how Excel distinguishes between formulas and literal values. Knowing this, you can create lots of formulas using the usual operators of +, -, * and / for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, respectively. Please see the examples below.

Add the contents of cell A1 to the contents of cell B1: =A1+B1

Subtract 2 - 1: =2-1
Add the contents of cell A1 from the contents of cell B1: =B1-A1

Multiply 1 times 2: =1*2
Multiply the contents of cell A1 times the contents of cell B1: =A1*B1

I hope this resolves the question. If not, please let me know.
