Calculated field question counting datetime and strings as numbers

Hello all!

I am trying to divide the number in the “Oferentes” column by the “Procesos” column. The “oferentes” is a ‘countdistinct’ of a datetime field, and the “Procesos” is a countdistinct of a string field. When I go divide oferentes/procesos, I get the error that I can’t divide a datetime by a string (duh!). So how can I make it so that QuickSight understands that I want to divide the numbers? I tried changing to measure but it didn’t work.
