    Default Excel Correcting Max Formula

    Hey All,

    I've been working his formula since yesterday and I've decided to break down and ask for some help. Excel keeps asking to correct the following formula:
    =MAX(F4*R4), ((((O4/MONTH(TODAY())))*12)*(F4))
    to:
    MAX(F4*R4)*((((O4/MONTH(TODAY())))*12)*(F4))

    I can't seem to get it right or figure it out. Thanks in advance!

    It would help us if you were to explain what you are trying to do, rather than providing a non-working formula.

    Sorry about that, I thought the formula would be enough. I'm trying to get the MAX between the total cost of cell F4 (cost) & R4 (qty sold 2018) and the estimated 2019 total cost, O4 (YTD total qty sold), divided by today in months extrapolated for 12 months * cost.

    How about
    =MAX(F4*R4,(O4/MONTH(TODAY()))*12*F4)
