How to base the sum of a control on the state of another control (checkbox)

I have a subform for which I am summing one of the controls, using the simple expression =Sum([LineTotal])

I would like that sum to only include the records for which a checkbox control is "true", but I'm not certain how to modify my expression to accomplish this. (see attachment)

Thank you in advance.clip.jpg
