Help with Conditional Formatting in Excel 2010

Hello:

I am trying to get some conditional formating to work and I must be missing something.  I have 2 columns with % in them.  They want to add the 2 columns together and then highlight the top 3 in green.  BUT they don't want the total of the 2 % to show only the first 2 columns.

I didn't explain that very well, let me give an example:

Say this row is one of the top 3:

Row  35.4%  35.6%       The total would be 71% but they want the 35.4% and 35.6% to be shaded green and the 71% would just be a calculation used to determine the top 3.

I am attaching a file as an example.  It hopefuly makes more sense.

Thank you in advance.

Thanks again

No problem....

.....Oh, and I didn't mean to keep column G in there - that was just for testing purposes so you can delete that - only requires formula in conditional formatting....
