I have a mysql database that lists 5 thousand businesses and i have wrote a php page that will pull back the first 5 listings and tell the person how many are relative to there seach.

So all businesses in essex will show the first 5 and say there are a total of 88.

how do i make it so that it will say there are x ammount of pages so that the user can click on the page number or next or prvious
