On the attached page I have the following recordset:
record_set('artGallery',"SELECT * FROM art_gallery WHERE artgal_Name = '$art_nme' ");

I am trying to get the following code to iterate through the array such that the "$sum_total" and "$sum_total2" produce the product of the two numbers in rows 1,2 3 etc as a list
This needs to be echoed in the body

I presume I need some type of loop ?

$rows = mysql_num_rows($artGallery);

if ($rows > 0) {
	$sum_total=0;
	$sum_total2=0;

	while ($rowData = mysql_fetch_assoc($rows)) {
		$first_number = $row_artGallery[artgal_sp];
		$second_number = "2.54";
		$sum_total += $second_number * $first_number;
		$third_number = $row_artGallery[artgal_sl];
		$forth_number = "2.54";
		$sum_total2 += $forth_number * $third_number;

	}
}

print ($sum_total);
print ($sum_total2);

Is this in the top section of the page, above the head tag, or in the body where I can use echo commands ?

I don't know where you want it printing out.

Place this in the body wherever you need it displayed

$rows = mysql_num_rows($artGallery);

if ($rows > 0) {
	while ($rowData = mysql_fetch_assoc($rows)) {
		$first_number = $row_artGallery[artgal_sp];
		$second_number = "2.54";
		$sum_total = $second_number * $first_number;
		$third_number = $row_artGallery[artgal_sl];
		$forth_number = "2.54";
		$sum_total2 = $forth_number * $third_number;
		print ($sum_total);
		print ($sum_total2); 
	}
}

Consider these good learning resources for PHP and MySQL.  The professional approach might be to write a query that will aggregate and sum the data.  In any case, SELECT * would not be the right approach if you can find out the names of the columns.  You would want to select by column name instead.

That usually means your query failed and returned FALSE instead of a MySQL result resource.  This article shows how to run queries and check for success or failure.  Check the code samples - they are well-commented.
