You can insert the value similar to how you would insert a value label. Something like this should work:

Of the [% (Q1_1)  + (Q1_3) %] people you see in January and March, how many did order?

The use the same code in the "Maximum Value" box for your numeric question.

Good luck!

And if you really need the (Q1_1)  + (Q1_3) calculation saved for analysis purposes later on, you can save the calculation in a free format hidden question.
