38x30=?x17.5%= I don't know how to type this into a cell to get the correct answer.

please help.

cheers, tina

Your example has 2 equal signs, so it's a little confusing. Are you to trying solve for the

?. If so, the formula would be entered very similarly to how you would write it on paper.On paper I would write:

38 x 30 -------- = ? .175In Excel I would enter:

=38x30/.175

Just FYI... If you were adding the values and not multiplying them, you would need to use parenthesis to ensure the correct order of operation was maintained.

=(38+30)/.175
