Forms can't calculate. It's the CGI or Javascript behind the form that
does the calculations. You need to:

a) Learn Perl or Javascript.

b) Hire a programmer to write you a small script, or

c) Install a ready-made script from some archive or other, for example:

http://www.worldwidemart.com/scripts

http://cgi-resources.com/

You're beyond HTML now...
