Formula calculation

Jun 06, 2022

Hi Everyone,

I need to perform a calculation in the storyline, which has the formula in it. 


User Input (a,b,c) and I have created the variables (E, F, G, H)

To Find:


and have to display





Is this something that can be done in Storyline or does it require javascript? 

Any help is much appreciated!

You could do this if you break it up into a number of triggers. There may be a more slick way of doing this but just using storyline triggers this is probably the easiest way.

divide b by c
divide a by b (which is now different to what was entered)
multiply a by 2
Set E to value of a

That's the first bit. Then you just need to calculate the others. You'll see that after each answer is set I multiply E again so that the next set of calculations can happen.

Multiply E by 2
Set F to that answer
Divide E by 2

Multiply E by 4
Set G to that answer
Divide E by 4

Multiply E by 6
Set H to that answer
Divide E by 6

I've attached a storyline file which should help make sense of this!
