Items per month report in SSRS (Reporting Services)

I have a database with trouble tickets, each one having a date and an amount of billable time spent on the ticket.  I am trying to create a report in ssrs that will show how how many tickets / billable time there are per month.  I am stumped on how to accomplish this seemingly trivial task.  What should my data query look like and does the report do the math or the query?

I would try and do as much of the math(s) in the query as possible.  The query could look something like this :

select datepart(m, iddatetime) AS [Month], count(*) AS TicketCount, sum(BilledAmount) AS TotalBilled from TicketBillable
group by datepart(m, iddatetime)
