HTML Question

find all unchecked checkbox in jquery

I have a list of checkboxes:

<input type="checkbox" name="answer" id="id_1' value="1" />
<input type="checkbox" name="answer" id="id_2' value="2" />
<input type="checkbox" name="answer" id="id_n' value="n" />

Syntax error, unrecognized expression: unchecked.

can anybody shed a light on this issue? thank you!
