    Question Multiples of Numbers

    Is there a formula by which I can find the number of multiples of one number in another number?

    For example, how many multiples of 200 can be found in the number 505. I know that the answer is 2 with a remainder of 105, but is there a formula.

    Thanks

    Hi scantor,

    Try this... =INT(505/200)

    I see this has been answered quick-smart

    scantor, if you're interested, you can also get the remainder with MOD:

    Or, if you want to go the pretty way ...

    =A1-INT(A1/B1)*B1 ...
