[xquery-talk] Division in xQuery

I have this xQuery


let $totalCount :=  count($dffileid)

let $blankCount   := count($refid) 


return $blankCount/$totalCount


As you have noticed I can't use the return statement like above because
I get this error "It is a type error if the result of a step (other than
the last step) in a path expression contains an atomic value". It does
make sense then how can I achieve this division?


Also if I try using one of the Function Operator


            numeric-divide($blankCount,$totalCount) I get 'Unknown
function name "numeric-divide"' in eclipse with <oXygen> plug-in.
