What is a Calculation Input Field?

A Calculation Field is a special input type that lets users do math right inside a form. It's like having a mini calculator that can handle math problems, add numbers up, find averages, or figure out the difference in days or times. This means you don't have to do the math separately and then type in the answer. Whether you're calculating costs, measuring progress over time, or just need to crunch numbers for any reason, this field makes it all effortless.
