Setting and calling a variable in a view

In the example below I would like to use the result of a calculation "Total square feet needed" and store it as a variable rather than having to retype the equation each time. How can I set the result as a variable and how can I call it? This is all being done in a view.

On the same note, I would like to set a price per square foot as a variable to be called in calculations. How can I do this (if it is different than my first question)?


Total square feet: [327]

Total square feet needed (including waste/cuts):  [frm-math decimal=2][327]*(1.1)[/frm-math]  

Price per square foot: $1.00  

Total cost = "Total square feet needed" * "Price per square foot"  

If total square feet is 1000, then square feet needed is 1100 and the total is $1100

Set the formula as a default value for a hidden field. The field will store the result.
