Average Minutes Per Hour - Formula

Hello Experts!

The formula I need help with, would be located in cell C22.

Here's a brief overview of my calculator...

For every 1 hour that I work, it is required that I have 24 minutes of Talk Time.

In the example attached, you can see I made 4 calls - that all lasted 30 minutes each.  Which gives me a total of 2 hours of talk time for the day.

Cell C22, should say "24" - but I don't know how to write the formula.

* Please check out how my formulas are interacting which each other.  I'm sure that will be the easiest way to figure out what's going on before you provide a possible solution.

If you need anymore information, please don't hesitate to ask!

Thank you in advance!

Can you explain why C22 should be 24, why does 2 hours equate to 24?

This formula will give yo 24 based on the amount in C19

=C19*12*24

format C22 as general

.......but I'm not sure that's what you want

@ barryhoudini,

24 would represent how many minutes per hour I am on the phone.

Based on the start & end time, there is 5 working hours.  For every hour, I need 24 minutes of talk time.  If I'm there for a whole shift, there would mean I need to talk on the phone for 2 hours, which would break down to 24 minutes per hour of talk time.

IE - If I was to work 5 hours, and my total talk time for the day was like 1 hour and 30 minutes, well my minutes per hour would be like 20 or something minutes per hour.

I hope that clarifies things... :)

OK, I think I understand - try this formula in C22

=C19/(C5-C4-C6)*60

format C22 as number
