User

User

basically want to create a formula in D11 that calculates the units based on the Cumulative equity. I want it to populate the Unit D11 column based on whats in row 15

Will you mind if you upload the actual file?

User

Yes go ahead

Excelchat Expert

Okay.

Excelchat Expert

How can we know the number of units by using the Cumulative Equity?

User
05/09/2018 - 12:41

For every $100K in equity, I'd like to add a unit. So if in year 2, equity is 200K, we would add one unit so there would be 2. Or if in year 2 there was $500K in equity, we would add 4

Good.

User
05/09/2018 - 12:47

Any idea what formula would work best for this?

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:48

First, Which value are we expecting in cell D3

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:48

?

User
05/09/2018 - 12:49

D3 being income rate? This is a percentage of the principal that is being used as projected rental income

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:49

Sorry

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:49

I meant E11

User
05/09/2018 - 12:51

So im starting off in year 1 with 1 rental unit. I want E11 to basically add a rental unit for every $100K in Cumulative Equity. So if the cumulative equity adds $100K in year 2, we would add 1 unit. Or if we added $300K in cumulative equity, we would add 3 units and so on

User
05/09/2018 - 12:52

So E11 based on equity in year 2 should show a value of 2, since we started with one and added $100K in equity

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:56

The cumulative equity for year 3 is:

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:56

= 309,000

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:56

If we divide it by 100,000

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:56

We get

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:57

3 units

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 12:57

E11 is in year 3, NOT year 2

User
05/09/2018 - 12:58

correct, whereas if equity in year 3 was 600,000, we would have added 4 units from the previous year as opposed to the 1 we would add with equity at $300k

User
05/09/2018 - 12:58

Yes, trying to figure out year 2 and I should be good by applying that for the rest of the cells

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 01:00

I am not understanding how you come up with the units from the cumulative equity.

User
05/09/2018 - 01:01

Lets use another example to maybe make it simpler - what if i wanted to add a unit for every $10K in revenue (row 12). If I made $10 thousand, id want to add 1 unit. If i made $35K in revenue id want to add 3 units. if i made $74K id want to add 7 units. does that make sense?

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 01:03

Yeah, up to that point it is clear.

User
05/09/2018 - 01:04

Ok. Any formula you would suggest for this?

User
05/09/2018 - 01:05

I tried an IF function that added a unit if rental income was above 10K, it would add 1 unit, but the problem was if I made $54K it would still only add 1 unit as opposed to the 5 it should have

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 01:06

Must you use an IF function?

User
05/09/2018 - 01:07

Doesnt have to be an IF function, just thought that might work best until i ran into this problem. Open to any formula that you think would be more appropriate

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 01:11

This function gives the number of units.

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 01:11

=INT(C12/10000)

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 01:12

That is for the case of every unit for Rental income.

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 01:12

Rental income of $10k

User
05/09/2018 - 01:14

I think that works

User
05/09/2018 - 01:16

Thank you!

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 01:16

Yeah,

Excelchat Expert
05/09/2018 - 01:16
