**Matrix calculations**plugin and adjust the following parameters:

**Question**- Reference to a question for calculating totals using the**Qx**notation.**Formula**- Select the statistics to calculate the score, which can be**Sum**or**Average**.**Calculate**- Select whether you want to calculate totals for**rows**,**columns**or**both**.
