I'd add that though this sounds clunky, once you're used to it it's quite 
convenient. I have several such, with moderately complicated 
calculations, with up to five input variables. Getting Gnucash to make 
the calculations is a lot less hassle than doing them in a spreadsheet 
and then transcribing a bunch of separate amounts into a bunch of splits.
