Create a formula in cell B5 that calculates the number of cakes needed by referring to the cakes per child figure in cell B8.  Use this to help you:

Cakes Needed = (Children in Class * Cakes per child) + 2

Remember you ALWAYS want to refer to cell B7 (make it absolute)

Copy the formula across and then check it works by changing the Cakes per child.
