### How It Calculates the Results

The calculator multiplies the deck area by the cost of the selected material to obtain the deck material cost. It then multiplies the length of the railing by the cost of the selected railing material to get the railing material cost. The labor cost is calculated by multiplying the deck area and the railing length by the specified labor cost per unit. The total cost is the sum of the deck material cost, railing material cost, and the labor costs.
