Very easy, first see this instructions to create the Custom Field

To remove the decimal part of the resulting number from a division of two custom fields for example, and for adding the final character “%”, you can try to set in the “description” of the custom field (of type “Calculated Number”… for example) a code like this:

<!--@@Formula:(issue.get("customfield_XXX") != null ? issue.get("customfield_XXX") : 0)*100/(issue.get("customfield_YYYY") != null ? issue.get("customfield_YYYY") : 1)

<!-- @@Format:
return numberTool.format(Math.round(value*100)/100)+" <b>%</b>";

See the “Format” part, this is used to change the color, the font, etc of the result and to add extra information to the field (like the “%” of the example)
