Sql query Average balance

I am trying to get an avearge balance within my sql select stmt and getting back a different number, i do this on a calculator and a number match

based on this logic
Finance charge divide it by the APR divided by 12 i should get average balance of 14,862.09

Finance charge=184.29
Apr = 14.88

my select stmt
cast(case when e.interestrate = 0 then 0 else abs(l.fin_chrg/(e.interestrate/12)) end as decimal(6,2)) as AAVGBALA,

gives me 148.62, but i should be getting 14,862.09


e.interestrate  = apr
l.fin_chrg - finance charge

are you dividing by 100 anywhere?  I can't see that you are, but I can't look at  your values either...

It looks like it's getting confused with the percentage... try this and see how it looks:

cast(case when e.interestrate = 0 then 0 else abs(l.fin_chrg/(e.interestrate/12))*100 end as decimal(6,2)) as AAVGBALA,

I guess you are missing a multiplication factor of 100?!

Arithmetic overflow error converting float to data type numeric.

Is your data type set to percentage? That would cause it to divide by 100.

you will need to use
cast(case when e.interestrate = 0 then 0 else abs(l.fin_chrg/(e.interestrate/12)) end as decimal(16,2)) as AAVGBALA,

instead. because otherwise decimal(6,2) will only allow numbers up to 9999.99
