change images when unchecking a checkbox using jquery

Hello -

Some details first:

I have 4 image place holders. I have several checkboxes. Each checkbox is associated with an image. User is allowed to check off 4 boxes.

When a user clicks on a checkbox it replaces one of the image place holders with the image that was associated with the checkbox.

After the user checks off 4 of the check boxes, the rest of the checkboxes become disabled.

So now we have the 4 image place holders populated with images from the checked check boxes.

Here is where my issue comes into play.

If the user decides to uncheck a box, i need the correct place holder image to go back to it's generic place holder image.

So if the 4 checkboxes the user checked were 1: Hammer 2: Screwdriver 3: Nails 4: Saw. Those 4 place holder images would be populated with a Hammer, Screwdriver, Nails and a Saw. If they decide to uncheck the Screwdriver checkbox then that placeholder image with the screwdriver should switch to the generic place holder image.

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to do that.

thanks in advance!

Below is the function that I need help with. My main issue is that when I uncheck a box it removes the wrong image from the place holder. It should get the value of the box I just unchecked and then check that value against the 4 places holders and see which one matches it, then change that place holder back to the generic place holder imager.

function countChecked() {  
        
        var radioCandyCount = document.getElementsByName('HowManyCandies');

                 for (var i = 0, length = radioCandyCount.length; i < length; i++) {
                    if (radioCandyCount[i].checked) {
               
                    var a = radioCandyCount[i].value;
                    var b = "2";
                    var c = Number(a) + Number(b);


                                           
            var n = $("input:checked").length; 
            
            document.getElementById("CandyCount").value = Number(c) - Number(n)

Hey thanks. I'm on the road right now, but will this work if each checkbox image is different?  

The place holder image will all be the same but each checkbox is associated with its own unique image.

yes, use a different class for each img but for each create one with the checked class

I tried to give each checkbox its own id with its own checked class. But no luck. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. Do I have to change the jQuery as well?

Do you think you can alter your code to show me how each checkbox would associate with its own image when checked.  You don't have to do all 6 checkboxes, just a couple so I can get the gist of it.

I really appreciate any help, thanks!

I just noticed if there are more checkboxes then placeholder images, then the extra checkboxes does not change the place holder images.
