I posted the following question in January. Nobody has responded. If any of the Blackboard people are monitoring this discussion please guide me. It looks like what I want to do is not possible in Bb or in Respondus. Is there any other solution that I can find for creating formula questions that can do the following:
Is there a way to insert a variable in a question that is calculated from another variable in the question. For example, suppose that a two numbers must add up to 100 and I want to use a variable for one of the two numbers, say [a], and then figure out the second number as the difference between the constant 100 and the value of "a"?
