Goal Seek Feature in Excel

The goal seek tool in Microsoft Excel allows you to use excel to figure out what value you need for x in order to get the desired value for y. This works by having linked cells and can be done by changing only one cell at a time. This tool is especially good for financial and production analysis. I will explain how to use the tool and also a good example of where you might want to use it.
