I don't think we have enough information. At least show the headings in the columns, and tell us something about what they mean and what your goal is. Is this a real-life problem, or for a class? In the latter case, what is the exact wording of the exercise; in the former case, what were you told to do?

Hello,

Sorry about that........

This attached is a Purchase order with the description 18 states @£3,000.

The column is quantity which is 1 and the net amount is 18 x 3,000.00 total £54,000.00 the order is an estimate.

We received the invoice for 12 states totalling £10,000.00 which I need to draw down from the purchase order.

I need to amend the quantity which I struggling on as I'm told it should be 0.something , then i need to work out the net to get my total to £10,00.00.

the columns I am struggling on are QTY Invoice = Quantity - Net price then line amount should total to £10,000.00

I think this requires knowledge of the business more than math. The numbers don't make sense to me. How can 2/3 of the states total less than 1/5 of the cost, when there is a claimed rate per state that clearly isn't constant? So I was hoping someone else might jump in.
