# Lookup Help

Helped her with one vlookup problem but these last two stumped me.

Add a column that shows if a ZIP code has a high population of children and a low number of competitors. High child population is anything greater than or equal to 30% of children population over total population. Low competitors is if a ZIP code has less than or equal to two competitors.

Add a column that shows what ZIP codes would qualify as being potential locations for a new store. A potential location is any ZIP code that has high children and low competition, or an average household income greater than \$50,000. However, a ZIP code cannot be considered for a new store if it has more than five competitors.

Any help would be appreciated.....

Hi,

If i understood correctly you want two new columns

First
Add a column that shows if a ZIP code has a high population of children and a low number of competitors. High child population is anything greater than or equal to 30% of children population over total population. Low competitors is if a ZIP code has less than or equal to two competitors

Formula
=IF(AND(E3/D3>=0.3,G3<=2),"YES","NO")

Second
Add a column that shows what ZIP codes would qualify as being potential locations for a new store. A potential location is any ZIP code that has high children and low competition, or an average household income greater than \$50,000. However, a ZIP code cannot be considered for a new store if it has more than five competitors.

Formula
=IF(OR(AND(E3/D3>=0.3,G3<=2),AND(F3>50000,G3 <= 5)),"YES","NO")
