HTML File to print Table of a Number in PHP

We set the $n to 10 You can make it any number or You can also take User Input. You can learn Taking user input in PHP here.  We simply used some HTML tags using Echo Statements, If you’re not sure how to use HTML with PHP. Please learn the Basic HTML concept in PHP here. We used a ‘for loop’ – from 1 to 10. We simply used an If-else condition, so that it uses different colors foralternate rows. Inside if and else blocks, we used <tr> and <td> tags to create tables rows and columns {learn how to create tables in HTML and PHP}.

echo "<table>"; //We are opening our table
if($i%2==0){ //Condition for Even Rows
    echo "<tr><td style=background-color:orange>$n * $i = ".($n*$i)."</tr></td>";
else //Obviously for odd rows
    echo "<tr><td style=background-color:lightblue>$n * $i = ".($n*$i)."</tr></td>";

echo "</table>"; //We are closing our table here.



It’s very simple – write ‘for’ keyword. In parenthesis () – You write 3 things, separated by ; (semicolons). First, initial value – from which you want to initiate loop. Second, till what position you’d like to run your loop. And the final is increment or decrement. $i++ simply means – Increase the value of $i by 1 after each iteration.
