You haven't told us what you're trying to do. Seeing that you have four checkboxes, it seems that you're only printing the result corresponding to the last checkbox that is checked in the case that more than one checkbox is checked. Every time you write "amount = value" you're overwriting the current value with a new one.

Addition is done with the + operator. If grand_total is meant to be a numeric sum then you should initialize it as 0. How familiar are you with Javascript? This is pretty basic.
