# Why can't I get this formula to work?

#### Sergio_Montenegro

##### Board Regular
=(G5-250)*(\$D\$1)+(E1)*G1

G5 is 350
D1 is 0.1046
E1 is 82.9
G1 is 0.91

The formula returns 85.899 yet when I calculate it manually the value is 84.9576

Is there something blatantly obvious that I am doing wrong...

### Excel Facts

If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Try

=(((G5-250)*D1)+E1)*G1

#### Sergio_Montenegro

##### Board Regular
Try

=(((G5-250)*D1)+E1)*G1

Many thanks SW, I think that might have been the only version that I didn't try... It's been driving me mad for an hour (I am a very basic Excel user, as you may have guessed)... Anyway, many thanks again..

Serge..
