Combining Layers

I am having a hard time figuring out how I might go about combining two different layers in my arcmap document. I will explain what I mean. I have a layer from an excel file that gives about 5 alphabetized "rate age types" (M, O, P, Q, R, N) based on the specifics of the data I am mapping. I have symbolized these using shapes (triangle for M, circle for O...). This is point data on a map of Florida, every point has specific values. I also have a separate layer of marginal values that range from .1%-200%. Theyre classified using natural breaks. What I need to do is somehow combine these two layers so that the shape of the different "rate age type" (M, O, P, Q, R, N) is displayed within the marginal layer within each range. For example, a range of 1%-10% might have a triangle, circle, square and diamond because these range of points might have several different rate age types. I need this range to be able to display those shapes within its designated color for that range. Every point on my map has a specific shape given its "rate age type" and a specific color given its marginal range. I need to see these shapes & color range for every point within every range of the marginal layer. How do I do this in one layer so that I do not have to go between turning 1 layer on and the other off ? Please assist.
