# question

I want to make the following sum =value of a specific cell*1.01-(outcome of that sum*0.001575)

Outcome of that sum refers to the outcome of the sum 'value of a specific cell*1.01'

My question is, what is the symbol for 'outcome of that sum'?

# Re: question

In Excel, you can use a cell reference to refer to the outcome of a sum. If you want to refer to the result of the sum of a specific cell multiplied by 1.01, you can use the cell reference directly in your formula. There isn't a specific symbol for the outcome of a sum, but you can use the reference to the cell that contains the result.

Assuming the specific cell is A1, your formula would look like this:

=A1*1.01 - (A1*1.01*0.001575)

This formula first calculates the value of A1*1.01 and then subtracts 0.001575 times that result.

Replace A1 with the reference to your specific cell as needed. AI was partially deployed to support the text.
