# Percentages

how to calculate the percentages on a pdf form. The field varies between 1 and 100; I am trying to calculate the percentages of the correct answer, My fields are ANS and PCT.

Thanks

• ###### 1. Re: Percentages

Do you have a field with the total number of questions? If so, just set PCT

as ANS / Total.

To compute a percentage, one needs the total number of items and count of the items to compute the percentage for.

If the number of items is constant, a fixed number, then the computation for the the "PCT" field, formatted as "Percent", could be computed using the "Simplified Field Notation". Assuming you have a total 10 items you could use:

ANS / 10

Now if the total number of items is variable then you need to provide more information about the calculation.
