I need to label the numbers "1" and "3" to have the values of "3" and "1" respectively, and then have those numbers added together. How do I do this? And preferably, how do I label a block of cells to make these calculations quickly? Thank you.

Is that what you need? =IF(A1=1,3,IF(A1=3,1,""))

This will return a 3 if A1 contains 1, a 1 if A1 contains 3 and a blank cell if A1 contains anything other than 1 or 3.

Drag this down (or across) to apply to your "block of cells". (I'm not quite sure what you mean by a "block of cells" so I can't be any more specific than that.)

All you need to do after that is to SUM all of the cells that contain the formulas.
