We put engines on the planes, Each engine has time_since_new - eg 22538 (in hours)

We also have a customer profile that we say that for this customer the life limit hours is 50000 ( hours)
Now I want to calculate the percentage time remaining

I do 50000 minus 22538 and then get the percentage? Help appreciated.

(TotalLife - UsedLife) / TotalLife * 100%, or (50000 - 22538)/50000 * 100%.

((life_limit_hours/percent_time_remaining)*100) as answer_percent

As you mentioned this seems correct

1- [Current hours (22538)/Total hours(50000)]=%of hours remaining.
1-.45076 = .54924 which is 54.924% rounds to 55%

Exactly.  If you didn't want the value as a percentage, simply eliminate the *100 and you'll be left with a decimal value.
