The query was to find a 95% confidence interval of Y=A*B/K.  A simple method
would be to take logs giving
If these are independent then var(log(Y))=var(A)/A2+var(B)/B2 +var(K)/K2 but
K is constant so the last term drops out.  You can get a confidence interval
for log(Y) and then exponentiate the lower and upper limits.  Note that the
logs here are natural logarithms.
