ok so basically I been at this for 2 hours and I'm stumped.

I have 2 variables on the x axis' of 32 and 48 (so 32 is 0% and 48 is 100%)

If I have my mouse is between the two x axis' mouse_x will of course be a number between the two variable's x axis'.

how can I get the percentage between the 2 x axis' judging by where mouse_x is?

```var1 = 32;
var2 = 48;

percentage = 0;

if (mouse_x>=var1 && mouse_x<=var2)
{
precentage = (mouse_x-var1)/(var2-var1); //this is a number between 0.0 - 1.0
}```
Code only works if var1 < var2. Could make it work for any combination but im too lazy.
