Trouble with calculations within the form

    In this form, I am attempting to have >1 set of checkboxes, with each item adding to a total.  I then want to multiply that total by one of two numbers based on a different radio button. 


    checkbox set 1 has 5 of 7 boxes checked == 7;
    checkbox set 2 has 3 of 7 checked == 3;
    checkboxes 3 and 4 have nothing checked == 0 each;
    Total == 10, multiply that by 220 or 305 based on radiobutton 1
      The goal here it reflect two sets of prices (member vs. non-member)

    I originally set up 4 checkboxes where the values == 1 for every item then had the calculation field look like:
    (cb1 + cb2 + cb3 + cb4) * (radiobutton value)

    I kept getting gibberish, so I decided to see if the (cb1 + ...cb4) worked.  No - in the calculation field, I get things like "3+1+1+1" instead of "6".  Reading the help implies that the calculation isn't completed until every field in the calculation has a value, so I added a "None" to each item (except the first), preselected with a value of zero.  I still get 3+1+0+0, etc. 

    Help, please.  Thank you.
