    Thank you for contacting us. 

    First, I suggest creating your JotForm account if you haven't done so yet. You can use this shortcut link to do this http://www.jotform.com/signup or go to http://www.jotform.com  and signup.

    It will greatly help you get oriented on the form's features and functionality just be creating an account.

    After you have login on your new account, you should check the JotForm Template Gallery to easily find template forms that could already match what you need.

    You can check the Calculation Forms category for template forms related to Calculations.

    You can also use smart forms using condition logic to have such combination/comparison functionality similar to the example website you have mentioned.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
