    Type equation into Excel (2007)

    Can I type an equation into excel (y=14.3*x-23) and name cells in some way that Excel will provide a solution? (didn't think so, but I'd ask anyway)

    Thanks.

    You can name a cell x, and enter the formula =14.3*x-23 in another cell. You can then use Goal Seek to find the x for which the formula returns a specified value. See Excel 2007 Tutorials - Goal Seek.
