jQuey Adding dynamic variable (math)

I have a jQuery Function that loops, dynamically, depending on how many items are in a shopping cart.  For example, if there is one item, there is one jQuery function.  If there are two items, there are two jQuery functions, etc...  Each function creates a specific var called PRICE.   So, if I have three items in the cart the jQuery function loops three times and I have thee price vars. price_1, price_2, price_3, etc.  When the function is done looping I would like to add all three vars to get a total.  I have no idea where to start.

Do you have some code we can look at?

The code is to large and complex but every iteration of the loop I do this:

the var is always (premium_total) within each loop.
Could I create an additional var that contains the total and then have a function that adds up each iteration of that var?
or something like:
$('.price').blur(function () {
    var sum = 0;
    $('.price').each(function() {
        sum += Number($(this).val());

    // here, you have your sum

I sort of understand what you are trying to do - but not entirely.

The code you have posted will create the sum of all the elements with class='Price' - how that links to your premimum_total not sure. Also not sure what you mean when you say "Each function creates a specific var called PRICE."

Can you fill in some of the gaps?
