Formula to calculate outcome based on number range

I have a range of numbers which I need to compare against a table to determine an output. So, for example the table has 7 different options, less than 1000 (equals 1), between 1001-2000 (equals 2), between 2001-3000 (equals 3), etc and so when we input numbers, for example 2431, the output would automatically determine the answer is 3.

I know its a lookup but I dont know how to do a range lookup. I could just do a huge IF formula but I know there is a better way.

I have attached the spreadsheet im working so it is clearer and perhaps the solution can just be put directly into the spreadsheet.

Thanks

You can put the start values of each band into a column and then use those in the LOOKUP formula. See attached version of your workbook. I'm not sure what you expect to happen with the national rate column.
