# Blending Rate

Hello and thank you in advance for any help provided. I have a scenario where I pay out when units are greater than 0 at \$2.00 per unit. However, I am adjusting that to pay out when units are greater than 3. How can I produce a new blended rate so that there is no change in total dollars? Essentially I want to bake the costs of the 0-3 units into the new rate so there is no change in costs. So in the below left table at 0-3 units I paid a total of \$22. The table at the right for over 3 units I paid \$150 for a total of \$172. What formula or combination of will calculate a new blended rate to get me to total costs of \$172 by using the units in the table on the right?

 Units Rate \$ Units Rate \$ 2 \$2.00 \$4.00 5 \$2.00 \$10.00 3 \$2.00 \$6.00 10 \$2.00 \$20.00 2 \$2.00 \$4.00 15 \$2.00 \$30.00 1 \$2.00 \$2.00 20 \$2.00 \$40.00 3 \$2.00 \$6.00 25 \$2.00 \$50.00 11 \$22.00 75 \$150.00

I believe the rate you're looking for is Total Dollars / (only units >= 5)

Total Units = (only units < 5) + (only units >= 5) = 11 + 75 = 86

Total Dollars = Old Rate (\$2.00) * Total Units (86) = 172

So, Total Dollars / (only units >=5) = \$172 / 75 = \$2.293333
