Question on Excel If statement on coloring cells

I have a Formula =(B2*703)/(O2*O2) this is in G2 cell
B2 = 247 this will go up and down in cells B2 thru B100
O2 = 67 This stays the same times it self
703 is Always
= 38 rounded down
What I want to do is change different colors of the  G cell if the total is
30 or higher would be Red.
25 to 29.9 would be Orange
18.5 to 24.9 would be Green
Less than 18.5 would be Red

To change the conditions and color of conditional formatting do following

1

Select the column where you want to setup conditional formatting

2

Under the conditional formatting select manage rules which will get you the current set of rules applied to that column

3

Select rule which you want to edit and click Edit rule button (see Capture3)

4

On the new window you change the color/font/size  under the format button (see Capture4)
Using IF statement to change the colors is unnecessary since there is the conditional formatting...

Maybe more detail instructions can be found here : http://www.techonthenet.com/excel/questions/cond_format1_2010.php

You can apply conditional formatting to do the work...

I attached the excel with created conditional formation you can use Format painter to transfer the conditional formatting or  you can use the screenshots to recreate it for yourself..

I am not sure what you are trying to show here, Book1.xlsx where are you getting the color changes, I am not sure what format painter is,
Isn't there a way to use a if statement to change the number to didn't colors and not the complete cell?
