# Excel - IF Function Problem - Expert Solution

Question description:
This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.

Need to calculate out two equally spaced points between a range of dates. Basically like the MEDIAN function between two cells that have dates, but I need to produce two equally spaced points between that range. For example. If I have the following date range (A1) 2/2/2018 (B1) 7/2/2018, then that's roughly 150 days total. I want 4 equally spaced points (Start, Start-Mid, Mid-End, End). So I'd say that's 50 day chunks spaced euqally. Which would produce 4 total dates 2/2/2018 - 3/24/2018 - 5/13/2018 - 7/2/2018.
