How to get value through a matrix?

The BOLD box needs to provide us with the combined result of the following;
- When inputting the scale level within the 'Sample Point' section (ie:K9 & K10), the formula will use both values to determine; the multiplication range highlighted in the Matrix for the number of ECTS (ie: Scale level 5 by 20 ECTS should; Multiply the first 10 ECTS by 30, and the second 10 ECTS by 15 for a total of 450).

I assume 6 and 75.

And you lost me.

The value you want to calculate is 450? Is this directly from 6*75?

Yes, basically I need to design a formula which will;
- select the range in which the number listed in the Scale level fits in the matrix.
- then have the multiplication done according to the Number of ECTS by the stipulated range values ie: The first 10 ECTS need to be multiplied by the first Column, the next 20 ECTS need to be multiplied by the second column and so forth...

Does it make sense?

The scale level is 6. This is just selected by the user? And this points to the table to the left where 1-10=30, 11-30=15, and >31=5.

So you have 75 ECTS, then what? 1-10 are multiplied by 30, 11-30 are multiplied by 15, and 31-75 are multiplied by 5? That comes to 825, not 450.

Not exactly.
