Nested IF and OR (and possibly AND)


I have two checkbox columns: one for Arabic and one for English.  These columns will either be checked, unchecked or say "n/a".

What I want is to have another checkbox column where it is checked if Arabic and English are both either checked or "n/a": for example:

IF Arabic = 1 OR “n/a” AND IF English = 1 OR “n/a”, then 1, if not then 0

I hope that makes sense, I'm just not sure how to nest these.  Please let me know if you need any clarification.

    =IF(OR(AND(Arabic@row = 1, English@row = 1), AND(Arabic@row = "n/a", English@row = "n/a")), 1, 0)


    What this says is that if Arabic and English match (both checked or both n/a), it will check mark your third column.


    If I read this wrong, and you are looking for something different, feel free to let me know.
