Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Defining changing value cells and summary formulas, part of Solving Optimization and Scheduling Problems in Excel.
- So far, we have created a worksheet…that contains the values we need…to solve our mixture problem.…In this movie, we will add dummy values to the cells…that Solver will change…and define the formulas used…to calculate intermediate quantities…and the final cost of the mixture's ingredients.…The sample file I'm starting with…is LinearMixture_Formulas…and that is an Excel workbook…that you can find in the Chapter02 folder…of your Exercise Files Collection.…Let's quickly review what we've done.…
We have created a table at the top of the worksheet…that contains the cost of each of five mixtures…and we've left space for the number of Units to Mix,…the total cost, total units…and the Units Required in the final mixture.…In the bottom part of the worksheet,…I have added the contents of each crystal…in each of the five mixes.…Mix1 contains 0.20 units of Chalcedony,…0.30 of Aventurine and so on.…I also applied some formatting to clean things up…and just make it a little bit more consistent.…
Now I can enter in formulas and dummy values…
