    calculate TOTAL mileage (first 2 miles set rate) all miles thereafter set rate

    Id like to calculate TOTAL COST based on user entering mileage into one cell:

    First 2 miles of journey are charged at 3.50, additional miles thereafter ( on the same journey) are charged at 1.50. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello & Welcome to the Forum,

    Maybe just...

    =(2*3.5)+((A1-2)*1.5)
    HTH
    Regards, Jeff

    i think wrap it with below considering 1 or 2 km as well

    =IF(OR(A1=1,A1=2),A1*3.5,(2*3.5)+((A1-2)*1.5))

    in that event 1 (c4) mile is calculated at 5.50 =(2*3.5)+((C4-2)*1.5)
    in that event 2 (c5) miles is calculated at 7.00 =(2*3.5)+((C5-2)*1.5)
    and 3 miles = 8.50

    which is incorrect

    So we get all the requirements correct the first time...

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to make it clear what is needed. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are demonstrated, mock them up manually if needed. Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and use the paperclip icon to open the upload window.

    You could just say less than 3...

    ...and check A1 for a number...

    =IF(A1,IF(A1<3,A1*3.5,(2*3.5)+((A1-2)*1.5)),"")

    Hi You can use this


    =IF(A1=0,"",IF(OR(A1=1,A1=2),A1*3.5,(2*3.5)+((A1-2)*1.5)))

    should have consider 0 too , sorry about that

    Edited

    or use jeffreybrown's formula

    Re: calculate TOTAL mileage (first 2 miles set rate) all miles thereafter set rate

    Amy, Jeff,

    If I wanted to slightly change the calculation, can you please help?

    I want the first 2 miles to be charged at 3.50 inclusive; for example regardless if they travel 1/2 mile, 1 mile, 1.5 miles or 2 miles, the charge is 3.50. Once that threshold is reached, anything in excess of 2 miles is charged an additional 1.67 per mile

    Therefore a passenger travelling 1 mile charge = 3.50, 2 miles = 3.50, 3 miles = 4.67, 4 miles = 6.84

    Thanks in advance
