Suppose that I have 2 checbox fields, each with 4 checkboxes using separate values.  In a number field, can I add question 1 checked option 2 value with question 2 checked option 4 value? 

From all of the documentation, I cannot see any examples of how to refer to [field-id checkbox-value=some-unique-option-id] and perform math like this:  [field-id checkbox-value=some-unique-option-id] + [field-id checkbox-value=some-unique-option-id] and so forth.

Can this be done?

For anyone wondering, according to support this isn't possible with check boxes and filter shortcodes. Man, every time I turn around thinking Formidable will be amazing for this or that, I run into all of these weird edge cases. I guess I am trying to use it for more than it is intended.

You can do this with jQuery, not shortcodes.
