 Good afternoon good people! I dont know if this is even possible but I am starting to learn with Excel almost anything is possible if you know the right people who knows the right formulas/functions :)I am trying to use the Proportion Method to Solve Percent Problems - this method (for those who do not know) is When trying to find the missing PERCENT (out of the whole 100%). In a proportion the cross-products are equal: So 3 times 100 is equal to 4 times the PERCENT. The missing PERCENT equals 100 times 3 divided by 4. (Multiply the two opposite corners with numbers; then divide by the other number.)Is there a formula I can use to get this info? Thank you in advance!!!!

 I believe what you want is simply =A1/B1With your data like:``` A B C 1) 3 4 0.75 ```format cell C to Percentage and you get %75Is that what your looking for?MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/
