    You can use the calculated fields to perform calculations in your form. What you need to do is add a calulation field function on the field you want a result on.

    You can find this option by clicking on the gear icon on the selected field and selecting calculation field.

    On my example I will be adding the first 2 fields:

    As you can see on my form, inserting numbers on the value fields yields a sum on the total field.
