Passing a number variable to a short answer survey field.

In my project, I'm asking the learners to count how many times they see a safety issue in a video.  They click a button each time they see one, and the related number variable (%count%) is adjusted by 1.  I then want to pass that number value into a short answer survey question so I can capture it in our LMS.

The issue I'm having is that I'm not able to set the text entry variable on the short answer to %count%, a number variable, only other text variables.

I think I have a workaround for this (i.e. create a (hidden) multiple choice question that is answered based on the number variable), but before I go through the effort of building it, I want to be sure I'm not missing something.
