How to calculate total cost based on number of nights with weekly discount

    Asked on September 19, 2016 at 01:46 PM

    How would I calculate the cost ($35/night) based on total number of nights, which is fixed until the 7th night, and then there's a discount. There is an additional $10 discount after every 7 nights... so for example, 3 nights would be $105, 9 nights would be $305, and 15 nights would be $505.


    I would also like to add in other fields to this number, but not sure how to do it from a drop down menu with many different choices.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    This is possible with calculation features at JotForm.

    Here is an example:

    - Total number of nights added with a Number field.

    - Two Form Calculation fields to implement the calculation.

    - Calculated number of weeks is calculated with a floor calculation function

    - Total calculation formula.


    You can clone the form to your account to check the back end.

    If you would like to add some value from the dropdown.

    - Add a dropdown field.

    Assign Calculation Value to the DropDown Options.

    - Include your dropdown to the calculation formula.
