jquery to display different content based on radio selection

Posted on 2011-03-21
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have the following radio buttons:


I have a hidden div with a class="options2" that has display:none set. If a user selects option 2, I would like to change it to be changed to display:block.  

What is the best way to accomplish this?
<div class="input-fields-rfq">
	<label>Option 1</label><br />
	<div><input class="end_user" type="radio" name="end_user" value="1" style="width:30px;"></div>

<div class="input-fields-rfq">
	<label>Option 2</label><br />
	<div><input class="end_user" type="radio" name="end_user" value="2" style="width:30px;"></div>

<div class="input-fields-rfq">
	<label>Option 3</label><br />
	<div><input class="end_user" type="radio" name="end_user" value="3" style="width:30px;"></div>

//this is going to hide the previous option and show the new one
   var value =  $(this).val();
   $(".options" + value ).show();
