Also, you should use the var keyword to make your variables local to the function, and not global which is the case if the var keyword is omitted.
Although the default of an input field is "text" you should still specify it.
To round a display value to x decimal places, use .toFixed(x). Note that the value then becomes a string so cannot be used in any further arithmetic calculations.
What is the point of your formatinput() function? You change a string value (as input by the user) into a number with Number() and trap NaN errors with
var c5val = Number(document.form.c5.value) || 0; // value is 0 if the conversion to a number results in NaN
Numbers by default are real (floating point). If you want an integer value use Math.floor() or Math.round(). Or block the entry of decimal points in the input field.
If you want to perform your calculation onchange (not onChange), you must assign a default value of 0 to the two input fields. Otherwise NaN occurs.
All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.
