I have created a sql server view and am using linq to sql to read it.

  var testQuery = (from customers in dc.viewCustomers                                    
                                    selectcustomers);

Now the query returns column totalprice that is a money datatype in sql server

I want to amend the query so I get the SUM of totalprice.  
     

These are all
