Here is the code I'm using so far.  Is it possible to just echo a
javascript  variable on a page like you can a php var?


javascript is client side.
php is server side.
To use something client side in a server side script, the web page has to send it to the server from the client.

The best way to do what you want to do is probably to do the work count server side, but if you really want to use what javascript produced you can create a hidden input with a specified id, and use dhtml via javascript to modify the input and insert the value into the value field of the hidden input. Then it will get sent to the server when the user hits the post button.

However, since you should be validating any user input server side, you'll need to validate that the variable is accurate - might as well just do the count with php server side.
