Form Calculation Widget: Unable to calculate correctly

    I am trying to calculate the average of 6 numbers. The youtube videos don't quite give me enough instruction to make the calculations work. So if I add 6 number forms and a total form then I can add them okay but the averaging function or manual syntax for division doesn't work.

    Hi Allen,

    Thanks for patiently waiting. To do correct calculation, try separating number with brackets ( ). See the screencast below showing a demo of calculation of the average of the total of three numbers:

    Additionally, you could clone my test form ( to see the settings and the formula used in the Form calculation widget and to do more test on it.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.
