Just use the Conditional Formatting formula:
=$D$47=$D$52
and choose your formatting color.

You would so the same thing for both cells.

Thanks Joe4. I want to say I tried that but will try it. If it works will I be able to fill right?

If you simply want to check if the two cells are equal, that will work. It is pretty straightforward.

Not sure what you mean by this statement.
