I missed out brackets from initial formula:  

Rollbacks per transaction % = transaction rollbacks / ( transaction rollbacks + transaction commits )

Rollbacks per transaction % is calculated using "transaction rollbacks / transaction rollbacks + transaction commits" formula I think. As this is a ratio, we need more info like how many transactions did you have during AWR sample period.  

There is also the question how much do those rollbacks affect your application response time... which is not trivial to find out as the rollback generates similar wait events as normal processing (physical reads, log file sync's and CPU usage).
