# Thread: Simple formula (i think!)

1. ok, a rental copy rents items out on a daily basis, but does a deal. 1 day hire = 1 day cost, 2 day hire = 2 day cost, 3 day hire = 3-7 day cost. But some items are charged on a weekly basis only. So i need a simple formula to install in the weekly items to say, for example we use a1 for the rental hire period (days) so the formula in the weekly items needs to work out 1-3 = a week 4-6 = 2 weeks, etc.

Is this explained ok????

2. Not sure I follow, but try
=ROUNDUP(A1/3,0)

3. It's hard getting this into words....

Ok in 1 box I have say "2" so i need formula to work out that between numbers 1 and 3 this equals 1. then 4-6 this equals 2.

4. Not sure yet. Just a suggestion, since it's so hard to put it into words , why don't you put some 10 rows of data along with the expected results ?

5. Heres an example:

Rental Period = 2 days

Daily Items
1 x Ladder at £xx p/day X 2 days
3 x Towers at £xx p/day X 2 days

Weekly Items
1 x Truck at £xx p/week x 1 week
1 x Trolley at £xx p/week x 1 week

but all i want to do is adjust the rental period and let the formulas do the rest.
