The thing to bear in mind is that MySQL saves the data so you can call it up again in other queries. Data in PHP, on the other hand, is gone as soon as you leave the page or end the session. So, it is important to design a programme that leaves the data you want to save in MySQL. With that in mind, it is normally easy to see where the maths should be done.
