Use a formula like this one from the documentation:
```\$worksheet->write('A12', '=A3 + 3*A4'          ); # write_formula()
# For your case,
# Use     my \$format = \$workbook->add_format(); # Create a percentage
+format (Do some research here)
\$worksheet->write('A6', '=(A4+100)*100/(A5+200)'    ,\$format      ); #
+ write_formula()

I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it.
