I am working on a site through godaddy since I have no coding background.
I have a mysql database through them, and it puts onto the website page 4 columns.
First column is text for various criteria, the second column is Weight (would be percentages between 0 and 100, and the whole column would have to add up to 100%). The third column is a rating from 0 to 10. The fourth column would take columns 2 and 3 and multiply them together, and the sum of all those criteria should be at the bottom.
How do I do the mathematical computations?
Also, after a user hits "submit" to post his/her weights and ratings, how would I have the summed total of all the multiplications show up on the page? Is there a way to do that solely in the PHP/html section along with the mysql?
The criteria would be fixed (same for all users) but what they rate and weight would be inputted by them.
