Help Me / Points formula using "in the money" as a variable
« on: October 22, 2006, 09:11:11 PM »
Hello there,

I'm looking to see if anyone can give me some assistance in "automating" my points formula.  My points formula currently needs to be manually adjusted whenever there is a change in the amount of players that place in the money. 

For example, if there are 3 money winners, my formula would look like this:
round((n-r+1)*(n-r+1)/n*100+n*25/3*max((3-r+1),0))

If there are 4 money winners, my formula would be this:
round((n-r+1)*(n-r+1)/n*100+n*25/4*max((4-r+1),0))

I would love to be able to find a formula that would automate this, so that I didn't have to manually change these numbers when there is a change in money winners.  I have been trying to use the "in the money" (m) variable, but I can't seem to put together something that will work for me.

Any help with this would be appreciated.
