    Javascript Math to generate form value.

    ok so heres where I stand, I don't know too much about javascript. Just enough to get me by. I am a PHP developer, I know how to do this in PHP but the client insists on doing it through javascript.

    Basically there are 3 different form values that determine the Premium Death Benefit Ratio.

    This is the formula the client wants:
    Premium to Death Benefit Ratio % (Created by formula = Annual (Level) Premium Amount (Divided by) Death Benefit Amount (equals a percentage) That percentage multiplied by Life Expectancy

    The 3 form values in the formula would be Annual Premium Amount (fypremium), Death Benefit Amount (dbp), Life Expectancy (average_le)

    I was messing around with javascript trying to figure it out and I have gotten no where since I am not used to writing formulas in JS. Anyways here is what I have so far:

    Code:
    function calculateLE(inputFieldId1, inputFieldId2, inputFieldId3, outputFieldId){
    	var DBR;
    	
    	var input = document.getElementById(inputFieldId).value;
    	
    	APA = document.getElementById(fypremium).value;
    	DBA = document.getElementById(dbp).value;
    	LE  = document.getElementById(average_le).value;
    	
    	formula = document.getElementById(fypremium).value / document.getElementById(dbp).value = formula3;
    	formula2 = document.getElementById(average_le).value * formula3;
    	
    	if { APA = "" } {
    		document.getElementById(outputFieldId).value = "Error getting Annual Premium Amount";
    	}
    	else if { DBA = "" } {
    		document.getElementById(outputFieldId).value = "Error getting Death Benefit Amount";
    	}
    	else if { LE = "" } {
    		document.getElementById(outputFieldId).value = "Error getting Life Expectancy";
    	}
    	else {
    		document.getElementById(outputFieldId).value = formula3;
    	}
    }
    Now I honestly have no clue if I am on the right track but what i've found on the net hasnt really pointed me in the right direction

    Here is the form values.

    Code:
    <input type="text" name="fypremium" id="fypremium" onblur="calculateLE('fypremium', 'dbp', 'average_le', 'premium_dbr')">
    <input type="text" name="dbp" id="dbp" onblur="calculateLE('fypremium', 'dbp', 'average_le', 'premium_dbr')">
    <input type="text" name="average_le" id="average_le" onblur="calculateLE('fypremium', 'dbp', 'average_le', 'premium_dbr')">
    In a nut shell the values for the 3 inputs stated above will determine premium_dbr's value.

    fypremium / dbp = percentage;
    average_le * percentage = DBR (death benefit ratio);

    If someone could point me in the right direction to finishing this id be very greatful.
