Lets say you have a MySQL table called “users”  that contains the following fields  
“Name”,  “Age”,  “email”,  “address” with the following data Also the database name would be myCustomers

Mike Smith,  29,  msmith@mydomain.com,   My Street
John Doe,  42,  bfranklin@mydomain.com,  My Street
Kevin, Smith, 32, mjones@mydomain.com,   My Street
Kathy Bates, 55, ttomlinson@mydomain.com, My Street



Using MySQL statements and PHP,  please display a list of first names and ages,  sorted by age.

Not tested, but try like this

$link = mysql_connect("host","user","pass") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db() or die(mysql_error());
$query = "select * from users order by age asc";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
 $name = explode(" ",$row[Name]);
 echo"$name[0], $row[Age]<br />";
}

Sorry, missing the db name:

$link = mysql_connect("host","user","pass") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("myCustomers") or die(mysql_error());
$query = "select * from users order by age asc";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
 $name = explode(" ",$row[Name]);
 echo"$name[0], $row[Age]<br />";
}
