Can someone tell me or give me an example on how to implement the following formula. My problem is the negative number! a = 20 b = 32 x = Value y=a+bx Thanks in advance, Scott  Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free. Checked by AVG antivirus system (http://www.grisoft.com).

Scott, It is as easy as changing the formula to y=bxa Assuming that x is never zero the above works. a= 20 b2 x=5 b*x = 160 y0+ (20) 0 y0  20 = 140 Colin On Wed, 1 Oct 2003 00:39:26 0400, Scott Lingerfelt wrote: :: Can someone tell me or give me an example on how to implement the ::following ::formula.
