    Default Variables past the decimal

    Ok this might be a stupid question, but is it possible to use a variable in a number with decimals past the decimal point

    For example:
    $A=1;
    $B='5.46'.$A.'742'; \\Or the following
    $B='5.46$A742';

    Obviously that wont work (At least I dont think it wont, it makes no sense) but you get the general idea of what I am trying to do.

    The last example would need to be
    Code:
    $B = "5.46$A742";
    which would turn it from an integer (number) into a string - although PHP is loosely typed and whether it's an integer or string is determined by context, so you'd be able to use $B in a mathematical equation.

    Your question isn't really clear to me but you can read more about type casting here http://www.phpro.org/tutorials/PHP-Type-Casting.html
