Decimal Calculation Not Working Right


I thought this was simple but it evidently involves a function I'm not aware of.


1     Field "A" has returned a value of 12.875 inches

2     Field "B" represents that 3 inches goes into 12.875 inches a number of  4.2917 times

3     Field "C" needs to show how many inches of 3 inches does the .2917 represent?


I can't get it figured out via Filemaker means. No problem as a general math issue. I just can't get FM to do it correctly.
