    Here's how you can do a calculation in the form: http://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form.

    I saw that you have already figured out on how to add a calculation value. However, you cannot add the fields to it so I have removed the formula. And for the "Options" field, I would suggest using Checkbox Field instead since you would like to calculation the multiple selections.

    I've cloned your form and made these changes, check my form here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50451081319953?
