Hello everyone, just got a query regarding calculating

I'm building a form and depending on how you fill it in you are given a score, currently i am using if/else statements.

Here is an example

\$age is taken from the database after the form is completed (persons age)
\$mc is taken from the database after the form is completed (regarding a car crash in the last 3 years)

\$age = say im 21 for example the outcome would be 2.5
\$mc = I havent crashed my car in the past 3 years so my score would be 0.5

Can these two results be added together giving a total of 3.0?

``````<?php

\$age = 21

if (\$age >61)

{

echo '0.5';

}

elseif ((\$age >= 51) && (\$age <= 60))

{

echo '1.0';

}

elseif (\$age <= 21)

{

echo '2.5';

}

elseif ((\$age >= 31) && (\$age <= 50))

{

echo '1.5';

}

elseif (\$age >= 60)

{

echo '1.5';

}

elseif ((\$age >= 22) && (\$age <= 30))

{

echo '2.0';

}

?>

<BR>

<?php

\$mc = 0

if (\$mc == 0)

{

echo '0.5';

}

elseif ((\$mc >= 1) && (\$mc <= 2))

{

echo '1.0';

}

elseif (\$mc >2)

{

echo '1.5';

}

?>``````
``````<?php

\$age = 21;

if (\$age >61)

{

\$age_score = '0.5';

}

elseif ((\$age >= 51) && (\$age <= 60))

{

\$age_score = '1.0';

}

elseif (\$age <= 21)

{

\$age_score = '2.5';

}

elseif ((\$age >= 31) && (\$age <= 50))

{

\$age_score = '1.5';

}

elseif (\$age >= 60)

{

\$age_score = '1.5';

}

elseif ((\$age >= 22) && (\$age <= 30))

{

\$age_score = '2.0';

}

?>

<BR>

<?php

\$mc = 0;

if (\$mc == 0)

{

\$crash_score = '0.5';

}

elseif ((\$mc >= 1) && (\$mc <= 2))

{

\$crash_score = '1.0';

}

elseif (\$mc >2)

{

\$crash_score = '1.5';

}

\$total=\$age_score + \$crash_score;
echo "age score \$age_score <br>";
echo "crash score \$crash_score <br>";
echo "total score ".\$total;

?>``````

i'll test this now bud, if it works ill rep and mark as solved :)

This was fantastic! excellent!!
