Default Receiving Error Msg:Unable to cast object of type

Goal: enter a number in two fields HoursPerUnit and PeoplePerUnit and the value for the third field, TotalHoursPerUnit will populate after the the number in the two fields have been caculated. Using the code below I receive the error message above. Please tell me what am I doing wrong? Do I need to cast the text as a literal? Please help?

Thank you in advance,
