How to total added loops

I have a small sum that loops for each individual item. Is there a way to total the subtotals though?

<?php 
$theqty = $row_Recordset1['qtyy'];
$theprice = $row_Recordset1['qprice'];
$thetotal = $theqty * $theprice;
echo $thetotal; 
?>

There is no loop shown in the code sample, so there would not be any subtotals.

Sorry..

 <?php $i=0; do { ?>
          <tr>
            <td class="bottomborder"> <input name="record[<?php echo $i ?>][qtyy]" value="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['qtyy']; ?>" size="1" />
              x <?php echo $row_Recordset1['pdescription']; ?>
              <input name="record[<?php echo $i ?>][productidd]" type="hidden" id="record[<?php echo $i ?>][productidd]" value="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['productidd']; ?>" /></td>
            <td class="bottomleft">R <?php echo $row_Recordset1['qprice']; ?> x <?php echo $row_Recordset1['qtyy']; ?>= <span class="bottomborder">
              R<?php $theqty = $row_Recordset1['qtyy'];
$theprice = $row_Recordset1['qprice'];
$thetotal = $theqty * $theprice;
echo $thetotal; ?>
              ex. vat
              <input name="totalprice" type="hidden" id="totalprice" value="<?php echo $thetotal; ?>" />
              </span></td>
          </tr>
          <?php $i++; } while ($row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1)); ?>

How would the subtotals be grouped (what column name)?

Well, it wouldn't be a column name I would use, wouldn't it be $thetotal ?

$thetotal = $theqty * $theprice;

which gives a subtotal for each line. But I need to add the subtotal of each line together. So if there are 3 individual products that look like this:

2 x $4 = $8
1 x $3 = $3
3 x $4 = $12

I somehow need it to add those up to give me $23.

I don't know if it would be some kind of foreach loop with $thetotal or what?

I took a wild guess with this but it didn't get me anywhere.

$sum = 0;
foreach($thetotal as $value) $sum = $sum + $value;
echo $sum;

OK, I think I get it better now.  This may not be exact (I can't test it), but it should be pretty close.
<?php 

// INITIALIZE A VARIABLE
$sum_total = 0;
 
$i=0; 

do { ?>
          <tr>
            <td class="bottomborder"> <input name="record[<?php echo $i ?>][qtyy]" value="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['qtyy']; ?>" size="1" />
              x <?php echo $row_Recordset1['pdescription']; ?>
              <input name="record[<?php echo $i ?>][productidd]" type="hidden" id="record[<?php echo $i ?>][productidd]" value="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['productidd']; ?>" /></td>
            <td class="bottomleft">R <?php echo $row_Recordset1['qprice']; ?> x <?php echo $row_Recordset1['qtyy']; ?>= <span class="bottomborder">
              R<?php $theqty = $row_Recordset1['qtyy'];
$theprice = $row_Recordset1['qprice'];
$thetotal = $theqty * $theprice;
echo $thetotal; 

// ADD TO THE VARIABLE
$sum_total = $sum_total + $thetotal;

?>
              ex. vat
              <input name="totalprice" type="hidden" id="totalprice" value="<?php echo $thetotal; ?>" />
              </span></td>
          </tr>
<?php 

$i++; 
} while ($row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1)); 

// AT END OF LOOP, SHOW THE VARIABLE
var_dump($sum_total);

?>
