I have cell A1 which is a text string:

100 blue cars, 100 red cars, 100 yellow cars

In cell B1 I have a number which is a multiplier say 2.

Is it possible to change the numbers within cell A1 dependant on the value in B1.


A1: 300 blue cars, 300 red cars, 300 yellow cars

B1: 3
  • You should edit this question and explain how you want to multiply ("in cell" or "from cell to cell")
