I have this pattern to base my sweater on but it was for a smaller chest size To Fit Bust: 30-31 (33-35, 37-39, 41-43)". But i can’t understand what to do as I don’t read patterns.

I have a 40 inch bust
Got some help on this from a new found friend, I’m now knitting a raglan sleeve but I’m about an inch in and wondering when do I begin knitting the tube part? As previously mentioned my measurements are.
Arm Length 51 cm /20 inches
Top of Arm near shoulder 43cm / 16 & ¾ inches
Arm above elbow 34cm / 13 & ¼ inches
Arm below elbow 29 cm / 11 & ¼ inches
Wrist 17 cm / 6 & ½ inches
Collar to arm pit 8 inches /20cm
Pit to wrist 16 inches/40 cm
If anyone could please tell me how to work out how many inches before I do the tubing, and when and where I should do my decreases I’d greatly appreciate it.
Is there any simple formula like ‘take total arm length divide by 4/6/8/? to find out how many cm’s/inches you need to knit for each section of a raglan sleeve.’?
Like 20 inches/6= 3.33
a)So you’d knit 3.3 inches for the top bit
b)3.3 inches tube
c)3.3 inches first decreases
d)3.3 inches second decreases/second tube
e)3.3 inches third decreases
f)3.3 inches fourth decreases/third tube
I’m also using woolworks.org/patterns/raglan worksheet. This being my 1st post you’ll have to add the www bit to the front and the (.html) bit to the back
At this point, you may remove the two A markers and continue knitting, always increasing before and after each marker B on every other row. When the raglan equals the raglan measurement, slip the sleeve stitches on to a holder (or a piece of yarn) and remove the B markers. Add one inch of stitches under the arm. Continue knitting a straight tube (or decrease two stitches under the arms every inch or so for a more tightly-fitted sweater) until the desired body length is reached. On the final row before the ribbing, K9,K2tog. Add ribbing of your choice on smaller needles."
Specifically in this bit of that "Add one inch of stitches under the arm. Continue knitting a straight tube " am I right (or wrong) in thinking that this means once I have an inch of material in the underarm section that I can begin knitting the tube? And by tube do they mean just knit no-increase (wrong-side)rows?
