This request is similar others of mine, but is about another topic. The similarities are that they abide by the same rules and the formula should be applied in the same system. The only significant difference will be the 3rd column of the table, from my previous requests; it may seem trivial, but it's not. I have a mostly automated profile/sheet/information that I'd like to automate even more as it allow custom formulas using limited data and operations. In the following table, the column (col) 1 is entered (by the profile/sheet/information) then col 2 is automated and I'd like to do so for col 3; currently col 3 is entered and the user is supposed to verify it's correct when col 1 is changed, but it's more than negligibly forgotten so the user doesn't benefit from having a col 3 as high as possible (using the table constraints). If possible, I'd end up with a custom formula to generate col 3, the only information it could have is col 1 & 2 and the only available operations are arithmetic (+, , x & /) and rounding (round(), floor() & ceil()). There is no need to figure col 2, it's only there if it helps finding the formula for col 3 (with the restrictions of the previous sentence). I haven't figured out how to enter a table in this forum (BB code for table doesn't seem to work). The following is a TSV, which I imported into a spreadsheet then printed to the attached PDF. Code: 1 2 0 2 2 0 3 2 0 4 2 0 5 3 0 6 3 0 7 3 0 8 3 1 9 4 1 10 4 1 11 4 1 12 4 1 13 5 1 14 5 2 15 5 2 16 5 2 17 6 2 18 6 2 19 6 2 20 6 2 Thank you kindly for your help.

The answer was provided by another math help resource. I would have made an update to my previous post but I can't seem to edit it.

This thread is becoming weird, I've unsubscribed, perhaps some posts can be deleted then locked.
