Here is my problem: Given a line ABCD ABCD.jpg Values I know: AD, AB, CD AB is greater than CD. I need to divide BC into 33 segments. Each segment will decrease in length from AB down to CD. I know it wonâ€™t work if BC is divided up into too many or too few sections. I am confident that given my real world lengths there is enough space to work with. I need to build a formula wherein I can input AD, AB, CD, and the number of divisions for BC. Then have it tell me the resulting lengths of the sections from B to C. I have been using Excel to write out a lot of attempts at linear formulas but typically when all is said and done if I sum the results I get a total length greater than AD. Thank you in advance. I will try to post this to the correct sub forum. Sorry for putting it here first. Last edited by ronmryd; April 19th, 2017 at 01:20 PM.
