That percentage is a percentage of the total dividends. So, you multiply by the box 1a (ordinary dividends) of the 1099-Div.

The box 1b amount is already included in the box 1a amount, so you don't add them together. Nor, do you subtract 1b from 1a.

Clarifying:  Do you do this with just "total ordinary dividends" amount box 1a?  Not any of the "qualified dividends amount" box 1b?
