<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<form name="theForm">
   <div class="the-form">Input Power In Kilowatts: <input class="btn_display" type="text" name="input"> 
    <span class="stylered"></span></div>
<div class="show-result"><input class="btn_calculator" type="button" value="Calculate" onClick="doMath()"><input class="btn_calculator" type="button" name="clear" value=" Clear Entry " onClick="clearAll()"></div>
    <div class="f5">
      BTU/HR Result: <input class="btn_display" type="text" name="display">

function doMath() { var one = eval(document.theForm.input.value); if ( (document.theForm.input.value != '' )) { var prod = one * '3412'; document.theForm.display.value=prod.toFixed(0); } else { alert ( "Form is not complete.
