please help me
and thanks in advance

bad in javascript? do you have experience in other technologies? javascript is not the only way to do so.
start your function using the onclick, and use the getElement("elementId").getValue() methods to retrieve the values of your input fields.
when you've completed your mathematical operation(s), just use getElement("elementID").setValue(resultOfCalculation)

I'm not sure if it's get/setValue(), since I don't really use javascript that often, it's possible that it 's get/setText()

There are no getElement(), get/setValue() or get/setText methods in javascript.


Also look at using the onchange event. You could also use the output form element, however it is not supported yet by IE.

Please try writing some code and when you get stuck, ask for help with exactly what you are stuck on.
