    Hi, Unfortunately we do not yet have a feature to create calculated fields in the forms. The best way to do this is using one of our Payment Tool Integrations which caculate this from a Qty option which I believe will best meet your need for this.

    Example: http://form.jotform.co/form/32335089503856

    The only other way to do this is with the form's source code and getting your hands dirty with some custom programming to create a workaround for this. There is also a workaround using Dropdown boxes provided by one of my colleagues for this found here http://www.jotform.com/answers/202265-Calculate-a-grand-total-on-my-dropdown-form-fields if you'd like to see if this might interest you.
