Adding Variables together mathematically
I am currently running into an issue where I am attempting to add together the "ScorePoints" variables of 6 quizzes to another number variable that I created called "IntPoints." For simplification purposes I set each quiz value to 1, so each one answer that is answered correctly should get 1 point, and if its answered incorrectly they get 0. so I added a trigger for each "ScorePoints" result from the quiz to add its value to the "IntPoints" variable that I created, and set to 0 at the start of the timeline. So I expected that since these variables were all "numbers" and not "text" variables when I added one variable to another it would compute as a number. So I added into the slide %IntPoints%, expecting its outcome to be "6" on the page. Instead I get "111111". I get a 1 "added" to the end of it, as if its adding it like a string, and not computing it like a number.
I do feel that I have a way around this, but just doing some logic to add a "value" of "1" to the "IntPoints" variable based on some logic, but I am a bit confused by why my scenario outlined above is not working for me. I assumed this would give me a "6" adding all of these variables together since they are all "number" variable types. I am attaching the images of my variables and output for reference. Thanks!
