do some calculations/calculate the numbers

I want to know the most natural way to say "do some calculations/calculate the numbers" for this sentence.

"I will [do some calculations/calculate the numbers] and email you the estimate tomorrow.

It's just a scenario, not real life.
I need to do some calculations for my client, such as the discount, cost-effectiveness, etc.

If it sound strange, could you tell me how you as a native speaker would say it?

Thank you.

    I'd use only "do some calculations".

    "Calculate the numbers" sounds weird to me; it seems to me that numbers are what you're using to do the calculations.
