# Excel Ratios and Comparing Two Cells to Determine Outcome

I work in a church and I'm trying to determine how to monitor if our rooms with kids/teacher
ratios go over the state requirements. For instance, we can have 4 infants with 1 teacher.
So, one of our rooms had 5 kids to one teacher and I would like column C to show YES if it is
greater than 1:4, but I can't get it to work. I tried making the ratio to a percent and using
the IF statement with Column B too, to no avail. Can someone please help me? What am I missing???

 A 1:4=25% B percent C "if A > 1:4 5:1 83.3333333333333:16.6666666666667 10:1 9.09090909090909:90.9090909090909 10.5:1 8.69565217391304:91.304347826087 15:1 6.25:93.75 13.33:1 6.97674418604651:93.0232558139535 10:1 9.09090909090909:90.9090909090909 40:1 2.4390243902439:97.5609756097561 20:1 4.76190476190476:95.2380952380952 20.33:1 4.6875:95.3125

### Excel Facts

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney
Hi,

No idea how your Column A and B data is populated.

Unless I'm misunderstanding your question, if you just have 2 columns, 1 for # of infants, and 1 for # of teachers, then it's pretty straight forward:

Book1
ABC
1InfantsTeacherNeed more teacher
251Yes
341No
4101Yes
5212Yes
6151Yes
731No
8401Yes
9101Yes
10401Yes
11201Yes
12611Yes
