The purpose of this puzzle is to wrapup all SQL or PL/SQL techniques to calculate hardcoded arithmetic expressions and formulas. Hadcoded arithmetic expression is a string storing any arithmetic expression where operands are constants. For example:
Formula is also a string storing any arithmetic expression where operands are either constants or variables. Variable values are provided separately. To calculate formula we need to substitute variables referenced in the formula with their values and then calculate resulting arithmetic expression. Formula examples:
a + b
a + b  100
(a + b) * 100 / d
SY.
[EDITED by LF: added puzzle number to the topic title. I can't decide how difficult it is. I hope someone else will be kind and supply that piece of information.
Edit MC: 3 stars given the definition we defined of star]

Package DBMS_AW based solution

This solution requires Oracle supplied DBMS_AW package which comes with OLAP option. You will not be able to use this solution if OLAP option is not installed.
Expressions

with expressions as (
select '2 * 3' expr from dual union all
select '(2 + 3) * 5' expr from dual
)
select expr  ' = '  dbms_aw.eval_number(expr) result
from expressions
/
RESULT

2 * 3 = 6
(2 + 3) * 5 = 25
SQL>
Formulas

This solution uses, besides Oracle supplied DBMS_AW package, MODEL clause and therefore will not work prior to Oracle 10:
with formulas as (
select 1 id, 'a+ab' frm from dual union all
select 2, 'a*c+bc' from dual
),
variables as (
select 1 id, 'a' var, 2 val from dual union all
select 1, 'ab', 3 from dual union all
select 2, 'a', 6 from dual union all
select 2, 'bc', 7 from dual union all
select 2, 'c', 9 from dual
)
select id,
frm  ' = '  expr  ' = '  dbms_aw.eval_number(expr) result
from (select id,
frm,
expr,
r
from formulas f,
variables v
where v.id = f.id
model
partition by(f.id id)
dimension by(row_number() over(partition by f.id order by 1) r)
measures(
frm,
regexp_replace(frm,'(\w+)',' \1 ') expr,
' '  var  ' ' var,
val
)
rules(
expr[any] order by r desc = regexp_replace(nvl(expr[cv() + 1],expr[cv()]),var[cv()],val[cv()])
)
)
where r = 1
/
ID RESULT
 
1 a+ab = 2+3 = 5
2 a*c+bc = 6*9+7 = 61
SQL>
SY.
