    I want to create a form with a calculation field that does the following:

    If Numeric Field A = 1 - 20

    Field B = Field A x $10

    or 

    If Numeric Field A = 21 - 50

    Field B = Field A X $15

    Is there a way to make these calculations happen without writing 50 separate conditional formulas for each number?

    (i.e. if Field A equals 1, if Field A equals 2, if field A equals 3... etc)

    You won't need to create 50 conditions for this. The key feature you're missing here is the ability to assign Calculation Values for each option (e.g. Options 1 to 20 on a Dropdown menu can have a respective calculation value).

    Complete guide: How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    After assigning a value for each, use those values for your calculation.

    You can clone the form above if you wish to have a closer look. But basically, the form was created based on the principles outlined on the 2 guides mentioned above.
