    Can you write it in an equation form ? This is not very understandable.

    If you are using the widget "Slider with calculated result", you need to setup the sliders properly.

    In your case, this is the formula you have indicated:

    (pow(#1, #2) + #3) / #4

    However, if you checked your slider widget, you only have 1 slider defined with should represent "#1". #2, #3 and #4 will not have anything to reference because you don't have any other sliders stated on the widget.

     

     

    I cloned your form for testing purposes, here's a screenshot of the output:

     

    My "Sliders with calculated result" widget is setup like this:

    1. I have defined two sliders in my "Configuration" setting.

    2. My calculation would work like this:

     

     

     

    Another thing that you can use is the form calculation widget which can be associated with simple or default form fields: http://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form
