    Yes, that would be possible to do.

    To do it, you would simply need to add:

    1 form calculation to your form that will do the sum of the two fields

    1 condition that will check if that value is under the maximum.

    The following guides will help you see how to do the calculations:

    How to Assign Calculation Value

    How to perform calculation in the form?

    And the following with the condition:

    Of course, if you happen to have any issues setting it up, just let us know.
