Calculations not executing immediately

I've created the attached form the allows a user to calculate the total cost of an invoice, within Adobe Acrobat DC.

 

However, I am having issues with the reliability of the calculations as they are not always executing immediately when I input values.

 

Is there anyway to resolve this so that the numbers/values immediately update once I have entered figures?

 

At the moment, I sort of have to navigate to other fields/sometimes update these unnecessarily just to make the calculations fire.

 

I am a very novice user of Adobe, so any guidance or tips would be greatly apprecaited!
