I would like to be able to ask my students questions which require calculations and a numerical answer.

Hi @Mitchum,

Thanks for your question!

Unfortunately, I don’t have a great answer for you. We don’t currently have a timeline available for implementing this feature. 


However, we see a lot of our users leveraging the image poll feature for this, uploading a screenshot of a numerical question and then collecting answers via open text.


I will make sure to submit your question as a feature request. 

Please let us know if you need help with anything else!

Hello all!


Was there other solutions to this? I’d like to ask participants to guess a number, without priming them with a range or options - basically asking them to guess a number between 1 and 1.000.000, and then see the average. 

Is that possible?

Hi @Mikkel,

Unfortunately, Slido won’t calculate the average of all the numbers that your participants submit via a poll.

However, you can try running a Word cloud poll, where the most common number they submit will appear larger on the screen?

Here’s how Word clouds work and how to set them up 👇


Please let me know if this could work for you!
