A Calculated multichoice question varies from a Calculated question by including the formula in the answer choice. They use the same wildcards as Calculated questions and their wildcards can be shared with other Calculated multichoice or regular Calculated questions.

The main difference is that text and the formula can be included in the answer choice as {=...}.

The question above reads **"Calculate the area of a triangle where b = {A} cm and h = {B} cm"**

The choices are then written as a formula as shown below with feedback.

The choices above read:

Choice 1: **The area of a triangle is {={A}*{B}/2}**

Choice 2: **The area of a triangle is {={A}*{B}/3}**

Choice 3: **The area of a triangle is {={A}*{B}}**

Once you have finished writing your choices and feedback press **Save Changes **to move on to setting wildcards. If you would like to read more on setting the wildcards, please visit the sub-chapter Example Calculated Question.

This is an example calculated multi-choice question.

A Calculated simple question varies from a Calculated question by offering a way to create individual numerical questions whose response is the result of a numerical formula. These contain variable numerical values by the use of wildcards (i.e **{x}** , **{y}**) that are substituted with random values when the quiz is taken.

The simple calculated questions offers the most used features of the calculated question with a much simpler creation interface.

Unlike standard calculated and calculated multichoice, simple calculated wildcards are handled locally from the formula in the **Answer **panel. After entering the answer formula, the set the tolerance level and how the answer is displayed.

When you have finished adjusting the answer panel, press the **Find wildcards {x....} present in the correct answer formulas** button.

Wildcard values will then be available to generate in the boxes below. You may set how many values to **Generate **for the question and then choose how many to **Display **as possible questions.

Below are some example wildcard values

Once you have finished. press **Save changes**.
