    Hi there,
    I am trying to work out a formula to sit in my form, so that I can mix different hardness of rubber to make a specific hardness.
    The rubber comes in standard hardness of 40, 60 ,70 Shore. 40 soft rubber 70 hard rubber.
    As an example if I mix one part 40 with one part 60 I get 50 shore hardness.
    If I mix 3 parts 60 with one part 40 I get 55 shore hardness.
    (3x60=180) + (1x40=40)= 220/4 = 55 hardness
    I would like to enter the rubber hardness value into two text boxes
    then a hardness required into another text box.
    also enter a Batch size into a text box.
    I would like the formula to work out the amount of 40 hardness and 60 hardness needed for the batch size.


    [Hardness Required] 55 (Enter a Value)
    [Batch Size] 25.00 KG (Enter a Value)
    [60 shore] 18.75 KG (Calculated Field)
    [40 shore] 6.25 KG (Calculated Field)
    Ratio: 3:1

    Any help appreciated.
