It's easier to explain what I'm trying to do with pictures.

I have this structure: what I have

And I want to achieve this: What I want

such that those two new edges are equidistant from the first, and the distance is set precisely (using the keyboard).

I've been doing this using two Edge Loop (Ctrl-R), but I need to do the math by hand, since it always counts the cut distance from the left. Is there a easier way?

You can fine tune the distance in the operator panel F6:
