# Excel: how to find quotient

#### Elliott

##### Board Regular
Hi,

I am trying to set price X using the following formula

(([X]*0.861)+2.43)-[Y]=Z

X=price
Y=cost
Z=profit

what would I have to multiply X by for Z to always be =0.50

I realize this is a math question but I also need to write the formula in Excel.

many thanks,

Elliott

### Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},\$Z\$1:\$Z\$99,\$Y\$1:\$Y\$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.
To always get a profit of .5, X would need to be defined as

[X]=(.5+[Y]-2.43)/0.861

many thanks,

worked great!

How would I state this to say, if Price <0 then Price = 0.1, otherwise is:

Price: Round((0.6+[cost]-2.42)/0.861,2)

Price: Round((0.6+[cost]-2.42)/0.861,2)

=MAX(0.1,ROUND(((0.6+A2-2.42)/0.861,2))

where A2 houses the cost value.

How would this be written as an Access Query function?

Many Thanks,
