# Trying to use division within INDEX/MATCH formula

Hello forum friends, the formula below returns 2003.06 which amount I am trying to divide by 12 so I get a result of 166.92. If I add a /12 at the end of the formula, I get a result of 1618.72. I recognize that it will be impossible for anyone trying to help me here to actually test the formula but if you have any ideas or suggestions, I will be grateful. Hopefully, someone can help me sort this out.

=ROUND((INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*1.0233*(0.025*12*1.084))+INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*0.025*12*1.084+INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*1.0471*(0.025*12*1.084),2)+ROUND(INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*1.0715*(0.025*12*1.084),2)+ROUND(INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*1.0965*(0.025*12*1.084),2)

Thank you!

### Excel Facts

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Just a guess, but what happens if you put parenthesis around your formula before dividing.
=(ROUND((INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*1.0233*(0.025*12*1.084))+INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*0.025*12*1.084+INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*1.0471*(0.025*12*1.084),2)+ROUND(INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*1.0715*(0.025*12*1.084),2)+ROUND(INDEX(CPP_OAS[Maximum Monthly Amounts],MATCH("CPP",CPP_OAS[Federal Programs (dollars)],0))*1.0965*(0.025*12*1.084),2))/12
