# Calculate percentage travel along line

Hiya, I need to calculate the percentage position of a value along a line. I know the starting value of the line and the ending value of the line and I also know the value at a certain point on the line. I just need to know what percentage it is placed on the line.

I haven't expplained it very well in words but my attached diagram explains it better.
