1. Dividing fractions into new cell

I am looking for a way to divide a fraction in one cell and put the percentage of that fraction into the next cell.

Example: B2- 36/164 C2- Percentage from B2 (36/164 = 21.95%)

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hey,

B2: =36/164
C2: =B2

Then format C2 as a percentage with 2 decimals

Is this what you are after?

If it's text you could try:

=LOOKUP(10^9,--LEFT(A1,{1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9}))/LOOKUP(10^9,--RIGHT(A1,{1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9}))

Hi

What do you have in A2

The formula: =36/164 that displays the number 0.2195...

or

The text value: 36/164

?

Another way:

 A B C 1 2 36/164 0.2195122

 Cell Formula C2 =--LEFT(B2,FIND("/",B2)-1)/--MID(B2,FIND("/",B2)+1,16)

For a text value I'd use:

=("0 "&A1)+0

You're welcome, thanks for the feedback.
But, the pgc01 formula is better.
