i.e. if I have a set number, say 14,250 and want to know what that number is as 75% of a 'total' number, how do I write the formula? i.e. I know by doing long hand that 14,250 is 75% of 19,000, but how do I write formula that gives me that number of 19,000 (if I have the set number of 14250 and the 75%)?

This is not a problem in Excel but in arithmetics.

IF 14250 IS ENTERED IN A1

in any empty cell type this formula e.g. B1

=A1*100/7.5

you will get 190000 and not 19000 please check .

if you put another formula in B2

=A1*100/7.5

your will get 14250 as check.

by the by is it 7.5% or 75%
