php loops

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.

I am getting this:

PHP Warning: mysql_fetch_assoc(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in I:\lbcLive\artistInfo.php on line 53

Ray PaseurCommented:
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.
