Lightbulb Reading time by creating a column with "word count"/"your wpm"

Hi!

I have no idea if this is possible but it could be useful.

I have a "word count" column, using the Count Pages plugin.
Could it be possible to create a second column and make the "type" an Excel-like formula of "word-count-from-that-column/your-wpm"?

The word count per min can be calculated on the net, at least at readinglength.com and could be a static number.

Like, say my word count column lookup name is "wordcount" and I know that my reading speed is 290 w/min. Is it possible to make it something like "=wordcount/290" ?

Is it even possible to add a formula in a column? I have no idea. Because at worst I could manually fill that column with "wordcount-number-that-I-know/290" instead of having it go get the number in another column.

Anyone can tell me if that's a pipe dream or if it's possible, please?

Here's a recent thread that could give some clues ==>> Calculate reading time.

And there's been some discussion/solutions on the issue posted in the Count Pages plugin thread, starting at page #71 post #1060

THANK YOU!!!
It took me a bit of time to understand how everything work, but the link to that page #71 really helped me a lot! I got my reading time now, this is perfect. And thank you for giving me the links, I don't think that I'd have found this so far down the thread
