    I could not find the mentioned form in the link you provided, but I found a similar one placed here: http://www.webpagefx.com/Free-Quote-alt.php 

    You can indeed add calculation values to the options in your drop down and radio buttons, these options then can be used to do calculations in your form. 

    This guide will help you to add calculation values to your fields: How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    And this one will help you to perform calculation in your form: How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-Using-a-Widget

    Here is the link of form I would like to use as a similar idea. http://www.webpagefx.com/Social-Media-Pricing.html (scroll down just a little on page ) to this area :

    I would like to have a little more “ala carte” feel and let them select what they need on each network by using the drop down menu on Jot Form …

    I will look at your examples and see if they can be implemented .. thank you .. just wanted to send the right link for you with screen shot to see if it changes your reply.
