    Number 4 that you have added to Quarter field is just an example hint. You need to set 4 as default value of that field. 

    Also you need to add your calculation within brackets, like this.

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71625280780962 

    Feel free to test it and clone it.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
