# Excel formula..... how would i write this into an excel spread sheet formula: 1st equation: 64 ( page count ) / 360 ( pages per inch ) = .1778 ( book thickness ) + .02 ( wrap around cover ) = .1978 ( total book thickness ) ( 64 / 360 + .02 = .1978 ) 2nd equation: 9 ( box height ) / .1978 * 2 ( number of stacks per box ) = 91 ( total books per box ) 3rd equation: 91 ( quantity per carton ) / .72 ( price per box ) * 1.33 ( mark-up ) = .0079 ( cost of box per book ) thank you for all your help

Let's start with the 1st equation. I assume you want to be able to recalculate by changing the number of pages.

Put 65 in cell a1.
360 in b1
In C1, put the formula =a1/b1 that's your book thickness
In D1, put .02 for the cover
In E1, put the formula =C1+D1

Now you can change A1, B1,or D1 and the Total thickness gets recalculated automatically. Be careful not to type numbers into C1 or E1, or you lose the formula.

The same for the other equations - a cell for each number ("variable") and another cell for calculations.

Once you've verified the results, then you can get fancy and add titles above each field to make it easy to remember what goes where.

You may need to change the cell format to control the number of decimal places, or thousands commas. Right click on a cell and select format to see the choices you have.

Keep a backup copy of the spreadsheet in case someone (not you, of course) makes a mistake and overwrites the formula cells. You can also look into "protecting" cells to keep them from being changed.

Hope that helps.

### Want to copy formula into multiple excel sheets

why not? however, you can also insert an apostrophe (') at the start of the equation before copying the entire formula so that the formula will be treated as a text thus preserving all cell references. dont forget to remove the apostrophes after you have pasted them though for the formulas to work again.

### Excel formula

I'm assuming you'd like to assign a numerical value to cardinal references (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.).

Best way to do this is to create a quick lookup table on a separate sheet of the same .xls document. Down at the bottom of the page, click on Sheet2 and create a quick table where column A has 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. and column B has your values.

Now click back to Sheet1 where your data is and in A2 put this formula:
=VLookup(A1, Sheet2!\$A\$1:\$B\$x, 2, FALSE)
Note: replace the lower case x in the formula above with the number of the last row of data in your lookup table on Sheet2.

You can copy and paste this formula down the column to calculate your other values.

Hope that helps!
