Excel conditional formatting for one cell

In Excel, I have a cell with text C16
I want to apply conditional formatting: if cell G16 contains a value greater than or equal to 2, color the text in C16 red

Thanks for your help!

You need to  select C16
go to Contional formatting
use "Use a formula to determine which cells to format"
then = $G$16> 2
go to format and pick the colour red

You can simply go to Conditional Formatting create a new rule there.
