# Calculation not showing the correct result.

2) It is calculating the two scores as "40" -- but I double checked and one of the questions is "reverse scored"-- so when i give the highest answer to four of the questions, they should each by worth 8 points (=32). When I give the highest answer to (for example, Q1 for Oratory), it should be adding 0, so my total should be 32.  I don't understand why it is coming out to 40.

Below is a screenshot of the email I received.

Thank you!

It is possible to have a max value of 40, because you have put in the calculation 5 questions, and those questions have an option with 8 as the assigned value:

So, if the user selects those 5 options which value is 8, then 5*8=40. Let us know if you have more questions.

Ah, I see what happened now... I thought I gave the answer of "0." You're right, thank you!

Can you tell me why the scores for the other 5 categories are not showing? I would be happy to show just the scores of the top 2 categories-- but in that case, I would like to not show the names of the other categories.  If all the category names must be shown (and so far, we have not come up with a solution that would allow just the top 2 to show), I would like all the scores to show next to the categories.

Thank you,

Thank you for the information, for clarification purposes would you kindly clarify on what you mean by "would like all the scores to show next to the categories" ? Since if the score is 0 for any category this will not be displayed but instead it will only show score for categories that are more than 0.
