Darts Can anyone help me with this arithmetical problem?

How can put on a spread sheet a starting dart target of lets say a 501 (variable).

I throw three darts and score 100 leaving 401 and so on until I reach 180 or any number below that. From this score I can finish by scoring 180 by hitting the treble 20 three times. If I scored, lets say 75, leaving me 105 to finish I have to work out what all the different combinations of numbers to score on my next throw to allow me to finish.

Example (105) I could score 5, treble 20, double tops. Or treble 20,9,treble 18, or Double 19, 17, double 20 and so on until the game is finished. I need a simple way to show my options once I have reached 180. Taking into account the actual score I made. Anybody good at spreadsheet. You help would be appreciated.
I question everything. I don't believe anything I'm told or anything I see. Prove it, or fuck off. And that's not me I see in the mirror in the morning.

We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.

I am excellent with excel (I use it all day long), but I'm not quite sure what you are trying to figure out. I've never been good at word problems If you clarify it, I can probably help you out.

Never heard of a darts game finishing on a treble in the UK, you finish on a double or the bull. Anyway half the fun is standing there scratching your head trying to do some frantic mental arithmatic after going for the treble twenty and hitting something stupid, like a one.

Thanks for the offer Pooooooot. But I found what I wanted on this site. Thanks again anyway.

Lol. I used to play a lot of darts. I'm fairly good @ math, but darts really helped me out and I formulated all as I was playing. Plus we always had to double out, which added to the equation.

It's not about getting there, it's what you get out of the journey
