    Smile Calculating a Price Range

    I am trying to calculate and show a price range. Example: You come in to buy a car and want to add some wheels. You can buy the wheels for $2,326 or you can finance them. The cost of financing is about $22 per $1000 financed so to finance them would be about $51. Here's the rub. I have to show a price range of about +4% and -4% ($49 - $53). I can easily calculate that using 3 fields:
    [a1=51], [a2=a1*0.96], [a3='-] and [a4=a1*1.04]

    Is there a way to calculate that and display that in one field?

    Thank you for your help

    Try:

    =TEXT(A1*0.96,"$0.00")&" - "&TEXT(A1*1.04,"$0.00")
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
