PHP MYSQL: Get Row Values from Recordset

An example recordset comprises two columns ("id" from one to five and "value") and five rows.

The need is to extract each row value separately and assign that value to a variable which can then be used in further calculations within PHP.

Those calculations will work with similarly extracted row values form a second separate recordest.
mysql_select_db($database_conn_mysqlretailpoll, $conn_mysqlretailpoll);
$query_rst_example = "SELECT * FROM regweight";
$rst_example = mysql_query($query_rst_example, $conn_mysqlretailpoll) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rst_example = mysql_fetch_assoc($rst_example);
$totalRows_rst_example = mysql_num_rows($rst_example);

I added the required code, to fill in the array $values, so after the fetching of the result set, you have that array as needed.
mysql_select_db($database_conn_mysqlretailpoll, $conn_mysqlretailpoll);
$query_rst_example = "SELECT * FROM regweight";
$rst_example = mysql_query($query_rst_example, $conn_mysqlretailpoll) or die(mysql_error());
$totalRows_rst_example = mysql_num_rows($rst_example); 
$values = array();
while ($row_rst_example = mysql_fetch_assoc($rst_example))
{
  $values[$row_rst_example["id"]] = $row_rst_example["value"];
}

Very fast thank you. Would you take a dumb question?

How to extract the value for id=3 for example as in "$fc3 = ...."?

$values[3]  or $values["3"]  should do it...

$fc3 = $values[3];
