# PHP for loop Exercises : Add all between two integers and display the sum

## PHP for loop: Exercise-2 with Solution

Create a script using a for loop to add all the integers between 0 and 30 and display the sum.

Visual Presentation:

Sample Solution:

PHP Code:

``````<?php
// Initialize sum variable
\$sum = 0;

// Loop through numbers from 1 to 30
for(\$x=1; \$x<=30; \$x++)
{
// Add current number to the sum
\$sum += \$x;
}

// Print the sum of numbers from 1 to 30
echo "The sum of the numbers 0 to 30 is \$sum"."\n";
?>
```
```

Output:

```The sum of the numbers 0 to 30 is 465
```

Explanation:

In the exercise above,

• The code starts with a PHP opening tag <?php.
• It initializes '\$sum' to 0. This variable will store the sum of numbers from 1 to 30.
• The code enters a "for" loop that iterates through numbers from 1 to 30 (for(\$x=1; \$x<=30; \$x++)), incrementing the variable '\$x' by 1 in each iteration.
• Within the loop, each value of '\$x' is added to the '\$sum' variable (\$sum += \$x;), effectively accumulating the sum of all the numbers from 1 to 30.
• After the loop, it prints out the calculated sum using echo, along with a message indicating what the sum represents (echo "The sum of the numbers 0 to 30 is \$sum"."\n";).
• Finally, the PHP code ends with a closing tag ?>.
