"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The multiple division will be calculated in sequential order, therefore $T14/1/$K14 will be same as $T14/$K14.

Should there be brackets around the Z14/K14 section?
