I'm not very sure what you're wanting?, you've already given what you need - calling the three values x, y, and z you need to calculate:

(x/y) + z

As it's a fixed calculation, do it in two stages, first divide x by y, then add z to the result.

You don't mention what language you are wanting to use, nor what system it's for - so anything else would only be speculation.

scale the division so you can work with integers. For example make it
20 / 5 wich is 4 then add 30 so the result will be 34. If you print the value on a display you can just add a decimal point beween the 3 and 4.

Pic's aren't very good at math, specially floating point.

For code snippets about multiplying and dividing go to the pic list
