Checking box if form submitter has selected certain options from a multi-select drop down



I am new to Smartsheet and have a form where there are about one hundred options in a multi-select drop down, they are subjects of expertise the person could speak on.

15 of the options are in the technology category of expertise. I want a checkbox to be automatically checked if the person selects one or more of the 15 topics in this category.

What formula would I use to do this?

I have tried the below function with no success, it puts a 1 instead of a checkmark and I cannot figure out how to have the formula reflect multiple topics instead of one specific one.

=IF(HAS("Technology Topic of Expertise", [Topics Aligned]71), "1", "0")

Thank you!!
