I'll give it a try but first I want to ask you something:
Did you read the tutorial on RPN ?
If yes: what was difficult to understand ?

Anyway, divide the problem in smaller portions:

x1 = (A+B-C)
x2 = (A+B)

result = x1 / x2

divide x1 further:
xx1 = A + B
result = xx1 - C

Paste everything into RPN:


Sanity check, by following the same rules as RRDtool does:

Complete line:   CDEF:result=A,B,+,C,-,A,B,+,/

stack after first calculation   (A+B),C,-,A,B,+,/
stack after second calculation  (A+B-C),A,B,+,/
stack after third calculation   (A+B-C),(A+B),/
stack after fourth calculation  (A+B-C)/(A+B)

I didn't exactly test it but I don't think I made a mistake.  Anyway,
use at own risk (as always by the way).
