Velocity tokens for Math Equations

Hello all,

 

I'm hoping I can get a little help with some Velocity scripting.

 

Essentially I I have a token that populates for certain people and I am trying to reduce that rate (it's a token) by either .25 or .50. doing some research and I found this site (Velocity Math Tool: Subtract : MathTool « Velocity « Java), so I plugged in the following:

 

$math.sub($lead.autoPreApprovalNewRate, ".25")

 

and

$math.sub($lead.autoPreApprovalNewRate, ".50")

 

 

I solved the main issue (not rendering the token but rather displaying the code) by confirming that the checkbox was clicked (it was not). now I guess my question is, is this the ideal way to perform such a task?

Thanks!
