    Hello,

    I am trying to create a formula that will multiply certain numbers within a range (1-9) by specific numbers. For example if there is a 1 in a cell, I would like that to be multiplied by 24, if there is the number 2 in a cell I would like that to be multiplied by 13.5, if the number 3 is found in a cell I would like that to be multiplied by 10, the number 4 to be multiplied by 8.5, number 5 multiplied by 7.4, number 6 multiplied by 6.67, number 7 multiplied by 6.29, number 8 multiplied by 5.88, and number 9 multiplied by 5.56.

    Essentially I am looking for this formula to convert numbers 1-9 to a scale of 50 and I am struggling with how to do that using conventional formulas found in excel or google sheets.

    Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
