    Formulae - how many more to reach a certain percentage?

    Hi chaps,

    Helped me loads in the past and hope you can again!

    What formula can i use to find out the deficit to reach a certain percentage?

    EG,
    Calls = 100
    Sales = 10
    Current % = 10%
    How many more sales would i need to reach 17%

    So i know the calls, sales & current % but need a formula to work out how many more sales required to reach 17%?

    Thanks!

    If those values are in A1:A3 and you have 17% in B1, then:

    =(A1*B1)-A2

    shows how many more sales you need.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    that would only work (I think) if you were assuming new sales were based off existing calls though, correct ?

    else if you're basing additional sales off new calls then you would (at best) have made 7 more calls to make 7 more sales... ie 107/17 -> 15.89%

    I don't have an answer, above my head I'm afraid, the above was more of a question to OP:

    "are there rules in play regards from where in terms of calls additional sales are allocated ?"
