Average of ratio of two fields?

Path Finder

in source X, I have fields A and B. I want to find the average ratio of two fields per hour. Something like:

source=X * | stats avg(eval(A/B)) by date_hour

...which obviously doesn't work. It says I need to rename something or rather...

I feel like I do this so often. Yes I did try that, but you reminded me I needed to capitalize the fields. I'm positive splunk is case-sensitive.
