    Can I apply a simple formula to the two number fields in my form to calc a total price?

    Asked by Colin  on June 15, 2015 at 03:14 PM

    Width - 10

    Height - 10

     

    So my formula would be 10x10/144x12xquantity

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You can indeed apply calculation to field entries by using a calculation widget:

    You would then add your fields into the calculation:

    Depending on what the final result needs to be, you may need some parenthesis in there to separate out the values.  For example if you want width x height then that number divided by the rest, your equation would need to be (width field * height field) / (144 * 12 * quantity field).

    Here is your equation setup in a clone of your form:
