Checkbox have a property IsChecked property. U can use it to calculate your pricing values.
For those check boxes which are check u can perform price calculation for them only. U can use this property to differentiate between check boxes which are checked and which are not.

How can i find checkbox inside datagridview??
DataGridView contains DataGridViewRows collection. Each row in the collection is DataGridViewRow[^].

To get the total sum of selected rows, you need to iterate through the collection of rows:
    private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        DataGridViewCell dc = null;
        DataGridViewCheckBoxCell cbx = null;
        double mySum = 0;
        string s = string.Empty;
        foreach (DataGridViewRow dr in dataGridView1.Rows)
            dc = dr.Cells[2];
            cbx = (DataGridViewCheckBoxCell)dc;
            if (Convert.ToBoolean(cbx.Value))
                mySum += double.Parse(dr.Cells[0].Value.ToString());
        s = String.Format("Total sum: {0}", mySum.ToString());

Oh, Gosh... are you a total beginner?
You can use Button_Click event. How to do it? Add a button on a form and double click on it to call Button_Click event.

IndexOfXXXXX - is a number of column in which checkbox/price is stored.

Maciej Los 28-Mar-13 13:26pm    
Yes, it could works for multiple selected checkboxes inside DataGridView. Just replace IndexOfXXXX with correct column number. That's all.

Cannot convert type 'System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCell' to 'System.Windows.Forms.CheckBox'

I am getting this error at CheckBox c = (CheckBox)row.Cells[2];
