    I am at a loss. Please help. https://www.jotform.com/build/72356378932163

    I have a calculation that works until I add in "level of activity" which is a radio button. The entire calculation up to that point should be multiplied by the value associated with each answer. Somehow the answer comes in lower than it should be.

    I have checked the form from a clone version and see the Form Calculation on the last page.

    To my understanding, you are trying to multiply the result of your initial calculation (the one that works) with the calculation value of the selected option in the "What is your level of activity?" radio button field. If that is the case, you can enclose the initial calculation in an open and close round brackets and then multiply it with the "What is your level of activity?" field value.

    You can also remove the open and close round brackets that enclose the "What is your gender" field in the calculation.

    After applying the changes above with the clone version of your form, the result of my tests is higher than the result when I first test the form before the changes.

    Here's the link to the clone version: https://www.jotform.com/form/72361846274966

     

    If, in any case, this doesn't fix the issue you are having, please let us know and please explain to us in details of the calculation that should be applied on your form to get the final result.
