Addition in Jquery

I am trying to do addition in JQuery but I'm not sure what I am doing:
baseOne = 1000;
baseTwo = 300
	var baseOne = document.getElementById('custom-price').value;  
        var baseTwo= document.getElementById('valueOfAccessories').valu);

        var preBase = baseOne + baseTwo;

Open in new window

For preBAse I get 1000300 instead of 1300.  What am I doing wrong?

Assuming they are always integers else use parseFloat

var preBase = parseInt(baseOne) + parseInt(baseTwo);

@Gary, when I do that it gives me 301.  It took the first three zeros off on 1000.
baseOne = 1000;
baseTwo = 300
var baseOne = document.getElementById('custom-price').value;  
 var baseTwo = document.getElementById('valueOfAccessories').value;

        var preBase = parseInt(baseOne) + parseInt(baseTwo);

Shouldn't do, are you sure it is 1000 and not 1,000 which would give you 301

Try
var preBase = parseInt(baseOne.replace(",","")) + parseInt(baseTwo);

p.s.
If you are using jQuery why are you using vanilla js to get the values instead of...

var baseOne = $("#custom-price").val();
