# Re: Intro to Analyzing Data in Excel

I am looking for a formula to analyze a promotion we did last Xmas. For the 3 months previous to Xmas, we had the promo Buy 3/Get 1 free. After Xmas, we changed to Buy 2/Get 1 free, for another 3 months. I need a formula to find out what each promo mean in the total result of the shops sales, to decide the promo for this coming Xmas, if we should stick to Buy 3/Get 1 free or change to Buy 2/Get 1 free, before Xmas. What should be done is get the sales result and set that as a % of total sales. In addition get the number of times we gave the free one (combination) and compare that as a percentage of total units sold…

Thanks,

Lulu
