    Hello jamieroshni,

    It is currently not possible to add the values of Matrix fields in the "Form Calculation" widget. To achieve your requirement, you will have to download your form's source code and add custom JavaScript to perform the mathematical operations.

    Please be noted that if you embed your form with its source code, any changes you make in your form will not be reflected in your web page. You will have to download your form's source code again and add the custom JavaScript. Also, you will have to host the source code of your form in your own web server as it is not possible to import the custom JavaScript code back to JotForm builder.

    Do get back to us if you want to take the form's source code route and we will provide you with the custom JavaScript.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!
