    Question number of lets say for example Drinks that could be made from a certain number of items

    Hi! I am pretty new to excel, and I am trying to figure out how the total number of lets say for example Drinks that could be made from a certain number of items if that makes sense at all lol.

    Lets say it takes 1 apple 2 oranges 2 lemons 1 strawberry would equal 1 drink

    So, if I had (39 apple 47 oranges 33 lemons 80 strawberry) I would like to display in a cell the total amount of drinks that could be made. Based on the amount of supply.

    I saw this forum, and figured I would ask while I google search to see if I can figure it out. It's not super important just another thing I'm trying to figure out. If could even point me in the right direction that would be cool.

    Hint: divide available stock (39/47/33/80) by requirement for 1 drink (1/2/2/1) then take smallest from result.
    In this case 16.

    Thank you Pepe I just didn't know what to put in the title TBH.

    I can get the math down. I just can't figure out how to get it to display 16 in the cell. Or if lets say supply changed to(0/47/33/80) then have it display 0. Guess if I knew more terms this would be a lot easier lol.

    A yellow box at the top of the page contains important hint for you. Once you prepare a sample file and fill your data it will be much easier to answer.


    For such a sample file (I prepared for you - this time only) one could use array formula *:
    Formula: copy to clipboard
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    *) ...confirmed by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to activate the array, not just ENTER. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer.
