All the Mathematical boffins here. I need the formula for a slide scale. The percentage of 1500 = 40%. The percentage must slide down and at 25000 and above it must be at 10%. <1500 = 40% >25000 = 10%.

It looks like you're describing a piecewise function. I doubt there is "one formula to rule them all". Assuming that the "slidy" part is linear, you could maybe try something like this:

y = 40                                             for x < 1500

y = 40 + ( 3 / 2350 )( 1500 - x )       for 1500 ≤ x ≤ 25000

y = 10                                             for x > 25000

Thanks. MS Excel came to the rescue. I am a dof after 2+2.
