Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a slider, part of Learning Excel What-If Analysis.

That means, if there were 10% discount, then the…quantity times the cost, would be multiplied by 0.9,…which is one minus, the 10% discount.…You might have noticed at the bottom of the worksheet,…that, in cell B19 I have a value which I've labeled…discount scroll bar value, and you'll see where that comes in…
