Please can anyone help me with formula I need for the following example [12.8 + 69 – (34 x2)] / 2 I will have a number of different numbers,and the result rounded up from .5 and above, rounded down below .5

Try:

=ROUND((12.8+69-(34*2))/2,0)

This gives the answer 7 and the final zero sets the number of decimal places to display.

mgmcc, thank you that seems to work. Next question,how do I get it to work on a list of numbers?

Answer

In general, have the list of numbers in a separate column and replace the "number" in the formula with the cell reference of the number it has to work with. For example, if it is the 12.8 it has to work with, put that in cell A1 and make the formula:

=ROUND((A1+69-(34*2))/2,0)
