I think this is what you are saying, please see if it works like you want:
<?php

$html = "<table>";

/*
and I want the items to evenly distributed
with the number of items per row being important
*/

if ($x==5) {

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
//3 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 2; $i++) {
2 items on second row 
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

}


if ($x==7) {

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 4; $i++) {
//4 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
3 items on second row 
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

}

if ($x==9) {

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
//3 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
//3 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
//3 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

}

if ($x==14) {

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 5; $i++) {
//5 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 5; $i++) {
//5 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 4; $i++) {
//4 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

}

$html .= "</table>";

// output
echo $html;

?>

Here, use this one (don't forget to assign a value to "x"):
<?php

$html = "<table>";

$x = 5;

if ($x==5) {

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
//3 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 2; $i++) {
//2 items on second row 
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

}


if ($x==7) {

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 4; $i++) {
//4 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
//3 items on second row 
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

}

if ($x==9) {

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
//3 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
//3 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 3; $i++) {
//3 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

}

if ($x==14) {

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 5; $i++) {
//5 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 5; $i++) {
//5 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

$html .= "<tr>";
for ($i = 0; $i < 4; $i++) {
//4 items on first row
$html .= "<td>Item $i</td>";
}
$html .= "</tr>";

}

$html .= "</table>";

// output
echo $html;

?>

Sorry, I don't understand what you're asking.  Do you mean if x is 1-14?  Please try to explain in detail.
