From: Dana DeLouis on 26 Apr 2010 12:35 One workaround... I'll use Range Names. Break the equation into Left and Right hand sides. Subtract the two. Have Goal Seek Set LHS - RHS to zero, by adjusting G. Not sure what you mean by "multiple equations" LHS =(P*R_)-(P*G) RHS =D+(D*G) =LHS-RHS Note: Solver and Goal Seek are only good for finding 1 solution. It won't work as-is if you have a polynomial equation to return multiple solutions. = = = = = = = HTH :>) Dana DeLouis On 4/26/2010 12:18 PM, WA wrote: > Correct - I am looking for an equation that can do algebra.

I would think doing the algebra to solve for each equation as Gary suggested would be the easiest way. I'm pretty sure Excel doesn't have a function that will do this for you. You might also consider using an alternate math only program instead of Excel. Bill
