I need some help with an equation, but cannot figure out what board it should be posted in. I have no idea what kind of math this equation is. Will the modertor please move this topic to the correct board?

I'm working on a board board game that can also be converted to a video game. So it has to work both ways. I'm trying to write out it's equation properly. Tell me if this makes sense or is incorrect(most likely).

[ ( Skill – Ward = Difference ) + ( 1d100 = Fate ) = Attempt ] IF ( Attempt > 1) + ( Modifiers ) = Result

I'm not sure if I'm writing the equation correctly. The biggest problem I have with writing this is: if Attempt < 1, the equation ends. If Attempt > 1 then the equation continues. Does that make sense?
