Using Addition and Multiplication in the Same Formula?

Hello everyone,

I am trying to calculate an amount based upon the sum of two numbers. If you look at my screenshot, the highlighted Hotel and Transportation budget amounts are based upon the # of Days Onsite plus # of Travel Days. I need the system to be able to add those two numbers together and then multiply it by the daily budget to produce the correct number in the budget column. So naturally, my first attempt was =[# of Days Onsite]2 + [# of Travel Days]2 * 60. However, the value it returned was 132 which it really should be 840. 

Does anyone have any ideas?
