Add up the population for the cities the user select

I am trying to get my website to add up the population for the cities the user select.
I took the http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/javascript/arcgis/demos/graphics/graphics_extent_query.html
as my base code
and added some code from http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/javascript/arcgis/demos/query/query_buffer.html

I think the problem is the "onComplete" it should be onDrawend, but I do not know how to do that.
