    Calculation widget not adding numbers

    Asked by hceest on June 16, 2017 at 11:00 AM

    Hi - 


    I have a form with two calculation widgets: one counts the number of correct items {correct} while the other calculates the percentage{total}. The first is working as expected but second does not acknowledge the numbers in the formula. When you take the quiz, it just shows the numbers in the formula. The math should be (the sum of the correct answers)*6.25

    The parenthesis in your formula is converted into text strings. You will have to switch them into a calculation or number format (black instead of brown). To do that, simply double click the parenthesis.

    Anyway, I have fixed it for you. 

    It should work fine by now.
