Calculating data between fields in different portals

I am new to Filemaker and using it for  a research project.  I made a layout with several portals, a separate portal for each of 3 record types. The portals use the same filter to filter records only the rec. type is different.   I then do some calculations in  another portal  on the records in each  portal.  I use get summary to put the results in a calculation field.

A screen shot of the layout is attached.

All that is fine but now I want to be able to do more calculations between the  calculation results  for the individual portals. The calculation results use the same fields but each is local to the portal so I don’t know how to access them. Do I need a script, global variables, something else?   I”m stumped.

If there is something similar in any of the starter solutions please let me know where to look.   They have been helpful.

Thanking you all in advance.
