Excel/if formula


Hello Robert,

I am trying to do multiple if formulas within one cell. Basically it is to determine pay of an individual. If an employee works under 8 hours they get regular rate of pay but if they work over 8 hours they get a bonus applied to their pay as you can see --> Bonus applied: under 8 hours= regular pay, =8hrs but less than 9hrs= $3.00, =9hrs but less than 10hrs= $3.25, =10 but less than 11hrs= $3.75, =11but less than 12hrs=4.25, =12hrs= $4.50

for example an employee works 9.4hrs they should get a bonus of $3.25hrs.

If you could help me out that would be greatly appreciated?


This should work for you.


As you can see it is a series of separate formulas which when added together will equal the result that you want because each formula equates to the result you want given the hours worked or zero.

You can copy and paste the above formula directly to your spreadsheet.

Hope this helps
