    I understand that you want to get the calculation done with the values provided inside parentheses. This can be achieved by assigning calculation values for the items in dropdown box. I believe that you are referring to the following JotForm : 


    I've cloned your JotForm to my account and it seems that you have already figured out the issue by assigning calculation values for the items in drop-down box.

    If you are referring to something different, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
