A1=35.0

A2=3.00

A3=quotient(A1,A2)

A3 is currently returning 11.00. But the format for all cells is "number", with 2 decimal places explicitly set.

How do you format cell A3 to return the value 11.67? This problem is not isolated to this specific worksheet; it occurs in all my Excel files.

1 Answer 1

The QUOTIENT() function is specifically designed to only return whole integers. If you want the exact value, just use regular division.

In Cell A3 put this =A1/A2 instead of the quotient function.
