Issue with simple division formula

I have a sheet that pulls labor hours via cell linking. I want the neighboring cell to result in total hours / 4, but I am continually getting an #INVALID OPERATION error. In the below, I want CM App Hrs = 40. If I manually type 160 in CM Hrs, the formula works fine.

All cells are Text/Number type (including the original sheet where info is linked from). I attempted to add a Value function, but still no luck.
