Bonus Calculation with multiple targets

New Contributor

Hello, 

 

I am trying to determine how I can calculate the amount of a bonus. In my example employees can get different bonus amounts based on how much they sell. There are 3 thresholds and corresponding bonus amount. 

 

40-55 apps    $25 per app >=40 and <=55

56-69 apps     $35mper app >=56 and <=69

70+                 $50 per apps >=70

 

I am looking for a formula that will calculate how many apps fall within each threshold. For example if someone has 57 apps how many 40-55 and how many 56-69? The payout would be 16 apps @ $25 each and 2 apps @ $35 each. Total bonus would be $470

 

Is there a formula that can do this? 

 

Thank you for your help!

See the attached workbook.

Here's another route, just to illustrate the fact that in Excel there are often multiple ways to get from Point A to Point B.

Enter the number of apps in the yellow background cell and the bonus appears in the green.

This is the formula: 

=VLOOKUP(B3,BonusTbl,3,1)+(((B3+1)-VLOOKUP(B3,BonusTbl,1,1))*(VLOOKUP(B3,BonusTbl,2,1)))
