Hi I have a question about how to do something in Numbers in iWork and or in Excel. I want to make a cell do this:

If x - Y = between 0-4 then return 100. If x - y = between 5-9 then return 50. If not any of those return 0.

Is it possible to so something like that in numbers or in Excel?

=IF(AND(A1-B1>=0,A1-B1<=4),100,IF(AND(A1-B1>=5,A1-B1<=9),50,0))

Where A1 is x and B1 is y.

A simpler formula:

=CHOOSE(MIN(A1-B1,3),100,50,0)

Where A1 is x and B1 is y.

Kevin, I do not see how your simpler formula will give the desired result.

guidx, Here is my formula

=VLOOKUP(A1-B1,{0,100;5,50;10,0},2)
