Any Excel masters here?

So my hockey pool used to have a salary cap of $25. therefore all the prices were like $1.40, $0.40, $0.30 and so on. every year we up the prices by 15%. and then we round up or down to the nearest 5. so for instance 1.40 x 1.15 = 1.61 so the price would be $1.60. 0.4 x 1.15 = 0.46 so $0.45 0.5 x 1....

Tarp under tripod/mount

So i was showing my friend your videos on setting up your equipment and he asked why the tarp. I said it keeps the dust off the equipment. He then asks if stepping on the tarp would move the tripod as stepping on it would put a depression in in and may pull on the tarp. So does it? Thanks
