Calulated Column Returns error apon dividing by Zero

SELECT
max(dbo.getmonthdate(t.TransDate)),
max(dbo.getmonth(t.TransDate)),
Sum(CASE t.TransType WHEN 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS PassportsIssued,
Sum(CASE t.TransType WHEN 7 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS PassportVerifications,
Sum(CASE t.TransType WHEN 8 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS SkillVerifications,(Sum(CASE t.TransType WHEN 7 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) + Sum(CASE t.TransType WHEN 8 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END))/Sum(CASE t.TransType WHEN 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS Calculated
FROM GetCardtypes(@schemeID) ct
INNER JOIN tblTransactions t
ON ct.cardtypeID=t.cardTypeID
INNER JOIN tblUsers u on
u.PHID = t.IssuedToID

The problem is that  (CASE t.TransType WHEN 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)  may sometimes be zero in which case I need to return "No Ratio Available"

Can anyone help me edit my query please.

change this column to be

case when  (CASE t.TransType WHEN 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) = 0 then 0
else
(Sum(CASE t.TransType WHEN 7 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) + Sum(CASE t.TransType WHEN 8 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END))/Sum(CASE t.TransType WHEN 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)
end

Imran I now get this

Msg 8120, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Column 'tblTransactions.TransType' is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.
