So, the basic idea is, if a product has 4.30 rating, we want to print 1, 1, 1, 1 and .30 in five columns.

We will be using formula =IF(C\$1<=\$B3,1,IF(ROUNDUP(\$B3,0)=C\$1,MOD(\$B3,1),0)) to fill the first star column of the product1.

#### What is this formula is about ?

This formula compares the rating value with the each of the 5 column values

If the column value less than or equal to rating value then it replaces the cell value
with 1.

If the column value is greater than the rating value then check the roundup of rating value is equal to column value, If so then take the modulus of the rating value and replace it with the cell value, If not Replace the cell value with 0.
