i have a few cells i want to do the following.
sum= quantity(cell1) times price(cell2) minus discount (cell3). how do i do this thnks

### Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.
Assume:

1. The quantity is in A1
2. The price is in A2
3. The discount (as a percentage) is in A3

Then in any other cell type:

=A1*(A2*(1-A3))

If the discount is not a percentage then type:

=A1*(A2*((100-A3)/100))
