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 numbers we need…to solve our mixture problem.…In this movie, we will add dummy values to the cells.…Solver will change and define the formulas used…to calculate intermediate quantities…and the final cost of the mixture's ingredients.…My sample workbook is NonlinearMixture_Formulas,…and that's a file that you can find…in the chapter three folder…of the exercise files archive.…I have my outline, or skeleton, for my solution,…and now I can start typing in my values.…
The changing cells for this particular solution…will be cells B11 through D13,…and those cells represent the amount…of the input Octanes 83, 88, and 95…that will be used in the final mixture.…So I'll select cells B11 through D13,…type the number 1 in B11,…and then press ctrl enter…to enter that value into all of those cells.…Now I need to enter in my Target Gallons,…so in E11 I'll type 45000, press enter,…then in E12 I'll type in 25000,…and then in E13 17500.…
I'll go ahead and do the formatting now.…
- Identify where the Solver add-in appears after being installed.
- List the steps to populate a cell with whole dollar amounts.
- Identify the style used to format numbers with a thousands separator.
- Name the error you will receive if you try to solve a nonlinear problem with the simplex LP method.
- Recall the length of the season and the number of games per week in the sports scheduling problem.
- List what the Scenario Manager allows you to do.
