Hi,
I would like to get the total values from the 3 select statements below and then calculate and display the total points as well as a percentage score in the total_score div?

What is the best way to do this?



<div class="inputname">Production</div>
<div class="inputfield">
 
        <select style="width:50px" name="upd_application[rate_production]" id="rate_production">

		  <option value="8"  >8</option>
		  <option value="9"  >9</option>
		  <option value="10"  >10</option>

        </select>
</div>

<div class="inputname">Entertainment</div>
<div class="inputfield">
 
        <select style="width:50px" name="upd_application[rate_entertainment]" id="rate_entertainment">

        </select>
</div>

	var total = parseInt($('#rate_production').val(),10) + parseInt($('#rate_entertainment').val(),10)+ parseInt($('#rate_commercial_potential').val(),10);
	var percentage = total/30*100;
	$("#total_score").text(total + " (%" + percentage + ")");

@sabecs
you should have at least split the points cause i posted the correct answer first.
Moreover, @jagadishdulal didn't provide the 2nd requirement of the question which is the percentage score.
