    I'd like my quiz to calculate the scores of each section and calculate a percentage for that particular section.

    Then do the same for another 2 individual sections.

    Then at the very end, calculate the overall total percentage.

    I've tried following the advice from another thread I've found but I can't seem to get it right it only ever displays ().

    Thank you.

    Please make sure that your equation is similar to the one below exactly for your first calculation:


    The last calculation should be similar to the screenshot below:


    Basically the issue is some parts are appearing in a light brown colour in your calculation, you need to click them to turn them into black, that is because the brown colour elements don't work with calculations, the only element that should be brown is the percentage sign.

    I have created a test form for you to check:

    Perfect. Thank you.

    I also a few more issues if you could help me?

    1) The logo that is showing on the top of the page is NOT the one that is on my editing version?

    2) I think there are multiple CSS codes for the buttons on the forms? I've forgotten which one changes which boxes. Would you be able to tell me what code I need to paste so that ALL the boxes are the same design, and all black, with white writing, and when you click on them, the writing stays white (currently it goes blue). Would it be possible to do this as one code so I can simply delete all of the existing CSS code and then just add one overwriting code that does all of that, for ease if I ever wanted to change anything in the future?

    Thank you.
