    Not sure i understand... so you want when you input 26 or 27 to get 3.5?

    Here's some pseudocode:
    Code:
    if number is odd
        result = number - 1
    end if
    result = (result / 2.0 * .25) + .25;

    this is what i got
    Code:
    Option Explicit
    
    Private Sub Command1_click()
        Dim firstNumber As Integer
        Dim secondNumber As Integer
        Dim thirdNumber As Integer
        Dim forthNumber As Integer
        Dim fithNumber As Integer
        Dim Result As Integer
        firstNumber = Attack.Text * 0.325
        secondNumber = Strenght.Text * 0.325
        thirdNumber = Deffence.Text / 4
        forthNumber = Hits.Text / 4
        fithNumber = Prayer.Text * 0.25
        Result = firstNumber + secondNumber + thirdNumber + forthNumber + fithNumber
        Text1.Text = Result
    End Sub
    and what i want is instead of prayer.text *0.25 i want it to go up and extra 0.25 every even number and still be same for lower odd number than it

    Try this:

    fifthNumber = ((Prayer.Text \ 2) + 1) * 0.25
