I'm trying to calculate 40 cents for every dollar up to 8% in excel. For an example, my 401k plan matches up salary dollar for dollar up to 6%, but if it's only 40 cents of a dollar, how is that entered into excel? To calculate my example, I would enter 0.06*(Salary amount) How does one have excel calculate 40 cents on a dollar?
