    Can JotForm perform a calculation on radio button responses assigned a 1-5 value?

    Asked by dmiksa on October 04, 2013 at 06:27 PM

    I have 6 rows of radio buttons with five possible answers 1,2,3,4 or 5.

    I would like to sum the total of all buttons selected and possibly calculate the %.

    For example if someone entered 3 for all 6 rows the total would be 18.

    if it's possible to find the % the calculation would be 18/30 (max possible score of 5 x 6 rows)


    row1     1     2     x     4     5

    row2     1     2     x     4     5

    row3     1     2     x     4     5

    row4     1     2     x     4     5

    row5     1     2     x     4     5

    row6     1     2     x     4     5

    Score (6*3=18)   percentage (18/30= 60%)

    Calculations through the form are not possible the way the code and functionality have been set by default to. Nevertheless you are welcome to download the source code of your form and modify it to function as you require it to.

    If you need additional assistance. Do let us know. Thank you.
