In this article we will discuss two specific types of custom fields. This is namely number fields, and calculation fields. The reason we cover both in one article is because they are often used together. For example, if you were selling something, you would store a price and quantity in two separate number fields. Then you would use a calculation field to multiply these two fields together to get the total price.
