    It's not possible, but we have this configurable list widget. Please check this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget

    That would require you to get the form source codes and modify elements such as the Class and Type of the matrix. Why use this if you can do it in the configurable list widget? If you really wish to use the matrix, let me know and I'll give you the steps to have it.

    Unfortunately, as my colleague said some comments above, this is not possible to do with the Matrix Field, and as you say the Configurable List widget can not be used with the Form Calculations widget. 

    If you want to do it you will need to get the source code of your form and customize the Matrix field to add the drop downs as you want and then add some Javascript code to calculate the total.

    This guide will help you to get the source code: http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form.
