This tool will help you calculate your total points quickly and accurately.

## How to Use the Points Calculator

This points calculator allows you to enter points for five different categories. Here’s how you can use it:

- Enter your points for Category 1 into the first input field.
- Enter your points for Category 2 into the second input field.
- Continue this process for Categories 3, 4, and 5.
- Once you have entered all your points, click on the “Calculate” button.
- The total points will be displayed in the “Result” field.

## Calculation Method

The calculator sums up the points entered in each of the five fields. It uses a simple addition operation to calculate the total points:

`totalPoints = points1 + points2 + points3 + points4 + points5;`

If an input field is left blank or a non-numeric value is entered, it is automatically treated as 0.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes all input values are numeric. It cannot handle complex mathematical operations or validation beyond treating empty or invalid inputs as zero. Ensure that you enter valid numbers to get accurate results.
