Hey everyone,

I hope you're doing well. I have a question about the PHP `array_sum()` function and I was hoping someone could help me out.

I'm currently working on a project where I need to calculate the sum of all the elements in an array. I heard that the `array_sum()` function in PHP is perfect for this task, but I'm not quite sure how to use it.

Could someone please explain to me how the `array_sum()` function works and provide me with an example? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hey there!

I noticed your question about the `array_sum()` function in PHP. I actually have some personal experience working with this function, so I thought I could share my insights with you.

The `array_sum()` function is a pretty handy tool when it comes to adding up all the elements in an array. It can save you quite a bit of coding and hassle. The function takes an array as an argument and returns the sum of all its elements.

Here's an example to help illustrate how it works:

When you run this code, it will output: "The sum of the numbers array is: 27" because 2 + 5 + 8 + 12 equals 27.

You can also use `array_sum()` with associative arrays, as long as the array values are numeric. However, keep in mind that the keys are ignored when calculating the sum.

I hope this helps you understand the `array_sum()` function better. Feel free to ask if you have any further questions!

Best regards,
