K = SUM [C * a1^t * a2^s * a3^u * a4^v]

Although not precisely correct, I gather most of you will figure out how the above looks like.

a's are known.

Is it possible to do this as a one liner in Excel, instead of making another column for the product, then summing them up down below?

where are the As stored? – nutsch Nov 28 '12 at 20:15
    
@nutsch - Anywhere within that sheet. They're constant so ... $N$34 is a1, and so on ... – Rook Nov 28 '12 at 20:51

Try using this formula, entered with Ctrl+Shift+Enter as an array formula:

=SUMPRODUCT(A2:A34*$N$34^B2:B34*$N$35^C2:C34*$N$36^D2:D34*$N$37^E2:E34)
