If I select a word from the drop-down menu, how to calculate selected cells with numbers

Hello friends, I was looking for a solution on the Internet, but I could not find what I needed. I have a drop-down menu with 4 words (for example: Analgin, Aspirin, Tree, Flowers) in cell b1. When I choose a word, I want to take specific values from specific cells, for example from a1 x a3 + b3 / a5 - for Analgin. Or for Aspirin a1 * a3 + b4 / b2 - c2, etc. for the other selected words. The result is in cell b10, no matter what I choose. I will be grateful if anyone can help me.

Excel Facts

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

Can you post an example of the full data? Not enough detail or precision to understand what you need or figure it out. You can use XL2BB to post screenshots

As a guess, a mapping table, with lookup into B10 may be one solution.

Hello,
this is just an example, but the idea in a sentence is that if a word is found in a given cell, it starts counting on the desired cells.

5if Analgine then in B6 = d3+g3/h3
6if Food bananas in B6 = f3*g3+h3/b3

I'm afraid it's still not clear what the map is from the 4 words to the formula

What connects
Aspirine to 5, 4 and 3 and is that 5 + (4*3)?
Analgine to 5, 5, 10 and is that 5 + (5/10)?

Why does it switch from 4*3 to 5/10? Then Food bananas has a different constant (3*5 not 5) and scaling factor (10/B3, B3 is empty in above)
I can't tell what pattern creates the formula against the words I'm afraid to suggest a formula unless you have 4 distinct formulae for each word selection

Hi again, sorry for the late reply.
Here is the whole idea, as I did not make two more of the requirements for small children and babies, but for adults I did it and showed everything necessary with explanations.
And I remain available if there are still uncertainties.
I know how to calculate things, I just don't know how to combine and make a calculation according to the choice of drop-down menus
One of my words makes it an asterisk because he thinks it's a bad word, but it's just the word.

4word 4constantIn cases where creatinine is defined in mol / l, the indicator 0.8 is used in the formula instead of 72. This is because 1 mg / dL is 88.4 μmol / L.next 4babies

C2 is a named cell KrPl containing the constant value used in the formula in C8:C12

Hello
I think we are getting closer to what I am looking for.
Please see my idea from the table shown in my previous comment.
So, in D1 is the word, in d2 and d3 are the two formulas for men and women.
In c10 is the other word, in c11 and c12 are the other 2 formulas.
This so far is to help understand what the formulas are according to the words.
The words and whether he is a man, a woman, a child are in M and N, so I can make drop-down menus in c22 (words), c23 (man, woman, child), in c25 (I write the years), in c26 ( height in centimeters) and in c30 I should get the result according to the selected and written criteria above.
So that we can reach the end, I remain available!
Because in the case of each thing we have a series of lines - ie for women, for men and for the other two words (attention !!! which I did not add), because I still think that if we do it for these two, after we will easily add the other two.
