I want to make a spreadsheet where I enter a cost in A1 say £25.00 then make a formula so that in B1 it adds 25%, C1 it adds 30% and so on to about 60% . What are the formulas please?

Hi, or just put your cost in A1.
In B1, to increase the whole cost by 25%, use the formula
=A1*0.25+A1

In C1, a 30% increase, the formula will be
=A1*0.30+A1

and so on. You just change the percentage multiplier in each formula.

I think you can do this most simply with a formula in the top row of each column and then copy this down each row as needed:

B1=A1*1.25
C1=A1*1.30
D1=A1*1.35
etc

or you could work with constants but that woul dbe more of a steam-hammer approach.
