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?

2$2.00$4.005$2.00$10.00
3$2.00$6.0010$2.00$20.00

1$2.00$2.0020$2.00$40.00
3$2.00$6.0025$2.00$50.00

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
