# Thread: using the if statement

1. I need help when trying to figure out the the percentage for a certain cell. I need a formula that looks at a certain cell and if the number within that cell is more than 100 a discount is then given and the results displayed in a different cell can anyone help me.

2. Is the discount the same no matter what the number (as long as it's over 100)? or is it on a scale (like 100-110 gets one discount, 111-120 another, etc)?

=IF(A1>100),B1-(B1*2%),B1)

entered in C1, looks at A1, at B1 where the price is by either computing a discount wrt the price or taking it as is.

4. the discount remains the same

5. That's better, Aladin, except that it won't show you what the original amount is, then the discount (if applicable), then the discounted amount. It might be important to know the original price and the discount in separate columns (but then again, maybe not). It's definitely more elegant than my solution (see other post).
Cool!
