Cognos 8 percentage calculation

Is this based on a relational or cube data source?

Which studio is this in (Analysis, Report or Query)?

Generally speaking, you just need to drag a calculation object on to the data grid, and put the calculation expression that you want in it. You can access your other two source columns when you build the expression.
