    How to put a formula into Mtext?

    Okay I am a newbie at doing this at this so bear with me.

    I am trying to figure out how to have a mtext group that will auto calculate a percentage for me like below when I input the numbers a1 and a2
    I need a1 divided by a2 to get "result"

    BUILDING AREA= a1 m2
    LOT AREA= a2 m2
    LOT COVERAGE= result %

    Do I need to use a diesel command to accomplish this, or a field? I have been searching for a bit but I am rather lost

    I think you would be better off using Fields.
