Subtraction and Division formula



I am trying to develop a formula which will look like this:

Column 1 value - Column 2 value divided by column 1 value to equal in column 3. Can anyone help me with building out this formula?

    Hi @tim.curtin

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this. (as suggested by Paul in his first formula)

    =([Column 1]@row - [Column 2]@row) / [Column 1]@row

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!
