    I noticed that Jotform can do purchase type of calculations.  What I want to do with calculations is different.  What I want to do is ask a question and get an amount; ask another question and get another amount - then take the information to give two different answers.

    For an example:

    The first question would be regarding how many items, the second question would be how much does it cost.  Then there would be a result of cost per how many (#3).  Also, the answers questions 1 & 2 would be used to give a result that would give a reduced cost and another result of increased amount(#4 would give two answers).

    Is there a way for Jotform to do this? Or would I have to hand code the formula?

    I don't have a smaple of this form idea.

    Unfortunately, we do not have such a feature yet. The only way to accomplish this is to take the form's source code and add a custom-made JavaScript to it.

    To get your form's source code:

    1.  Click Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Embed Form button
    3.  Choose Source option
    4.  Copy the codes provided in the succeeding screen
