# Re: [libreoffice-users] Help with Scoring Bi-nominal Responses

```Hello all,

I have a simple question for which I cannot find the answer.

I have a LibreCalc spreadsheet containing binomial data for which I
would like to create a final summed "score" (in Column T) based upon a
manually specified score index.

Columns F, G, H, J, K, M, N, O, P, O, and R contain pure binomial
information (0 or 1)
Columns I, L, and S contain multiple numbered responses:
I = 0,1,3
L = 0,1,2,3
S = 0,1,2

I want to create a final score (Column T) based upon numerical responses
(in Columns F-S)

```
```
```
All this makes me think of binary data, hence to have columns F..R (except I, L & S) set to hold either 0 or a power of 2.
```F would hold 0 or 1
G            0 or 2
H            0 or 4
J            0 or 8
and so forth.

```
Then, adding any group of columns would then give a unique meaningful value:
```-- if you add F+G+H and get 3, you know that only F and G are set
```
-- if you AND F+G+H with, say, 2, you may check if G (value 2) is set : if G AND 2 = 2 then G is set (in Calc use the BITAND function)
```
```
As I don't know exactly what you're looking to achieve, perhaps my idea is useless.
```
Anyway, just my two euro-cents,
