Attached is a simple spreadsheet to determine pricing for an event consisting of X tables, it shows the price, the food & labor expenses, the overall profit and the profit per table. I can declare a desired profit per table and have the spreadsheet calculate the appropriate price adjustment to achieve that desired profit per table. However, I seem to be unable to create a formula where that adjustment is automatically applied to the overall price.
Can anyone help with this?

=B9*B2+B5+B6
