# F10*(F13>0.01), is this a valid formula?

#### Happyking

I'm looking at a model and it has a formula I don't understand.

F10*(F13>0.01)
the input for F13 is "no"

So what does F13>0.01 return?

Thanks!

### Excel Facts

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.
If F13 = "no", then F13>0.01 returns TRUE. In fact, any string would be considered greater than any number.

So, your formula is =F10*TRUE. Since TRUE is calculated as a 1 and FALSE is calculated as a 0, your formula =F10*("no">0.01) will return =F10*1, or just F10.

If F13 has a value, then your formula =F10*(F13>0.01) will either return 0(if F13 <= 0.01) or F10 (if F13 > 0.01).

Thank you very much! That's helpful.
