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
10:19.09090909090909:90.9090909090909
10.5:18.69565217391304:91.304347826087
15:16.25:93.75
13.33:16.97674418604651:93.0232558139535
10:19.09090909090909:90.9090909090909
40:12.4390243902439:97.5609756097561
20:14.76190476190476:95.2380952380952
20.33:14.6875:95.3125

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:

<b></b><table cellpadding="2.5px" rules="all" style=";background-color: rgb(255,255,255);border: 1px solid;border-collapse: collapse; border-color: rgb(187,187,187)"><colgroup><col width="25px" style="background-color: rgb(218,231,245)" /><col /><col /><col /></colgroup><thead><tr style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);text-align: center;color: rgb(22,17,32)"><th></th><th>A</th><th>B</th><th>C</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">1</td><td style=";">Infants</td><td style=";">Teacher</td><td style=";">Need more teacher</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">2</td><td style="text-align: right;;">5</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">Yes</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">3</td><td style="text-align: right;;">4</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">No</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">4</td><td style="text-align: right;;">10</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">Yes</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">5</td><td style="text-align: right;;">21</td><td style="text-align: right;;">2</td><td style=";">Yes</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">6</td><td style="text-align: right;;">15</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">Yes</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">7</td><td style="text-align: right;;">3</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">No</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">8</td><td style="text-align: right;;">40</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">Yes</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">9</td><td style="text-align: right;;">10</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">Yes</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">10</td><td style="text-align: right;;">40</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">Yes</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">11</td><td style="text-align: right;;">20</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">Yes</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">12</td><td style="text-align: right;;">61</td><td style="text-align: right;;">1</td><td style=";">Yes</td></tr></tbody></table><p style="width:6.4em;font-weight:bold;margin:0;padding:0.2em 0.6em 0.2em 0.5em;border: 1px solid rgb(187,187,187);border-top:none;text-align: center;background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)">Sheet555</p><br /><br /><table width="85%" cellpadding="2.5px" rules="all" style=";border: 2px solid black;border-collapse:collapse;padding: 0.4em;background-color: rgb(255,255,255)" ><tr><td style="padding:6px" ><b>Worksheet Formulas</b><table cellpadding="2.5px" width="100%" rules="all" style="border: 1px solid;text-align:center;background-color: rgb(255,255,255);border-collapse: collapse; border-color: rgb(187,187,187)"><thead><tr style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)"><th width="10px">Cell</th><th style="text-align:left;padding-left:5px;">Formula</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><th width="10px" style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)">C2</th><td style="text-align:left">=IF(<font color="Blue">B2/A2<0.25,"Yes","No"</font>)</td></tr></tbody></table></td></tr></table><br />
