How to Sum values in array by key indexes in loop

I try  sum some values from the array from certain ranges provided by another array.

I've tried with the following function :

function sumArray($array, $min, $max) {
    $sum = 0;
    foreach ($array as $k => $v) {
       if ($k >= $min && $k <= $max) {
          $sum += $v;
    return $sum;

and this works if i hard code the numbers,

but i can't figure out how to make this to work in a loop

So I have this array named dates

array(3) {
  ["June"]=> int(4)
  ["July"]=> int(31)
  ["August"]=> int(29)

and i have this  array named daily_values

array(64) {
  [0]=> int(8)
  [1]=> int(6)
  [2]=> int(10)
  [3]=> int(15)
  [4]=> int(10)
  [5]=> int(9)
  [6]=> int(9)
  [63] => int(10)

Now I want to do here is: based on how many entries are in for example

June which is 4 in this case I want to get the sum of values in daily_values array like this:

first loop iteration will sum values in daily_values array from 0 to 3, the second loop iteration will sum values from 4 to 34 and third loop iteration will sum values from 35 to 63 and so on and so on.

and I want from all this is to have an array which will be like this

["sum of 0,3", "sum of 4,34", "sum of 35,63"]

Just a note here, this array is much bigger, but I cut it short just for question purposes.

Answer :

try the Following code :

I created a same test and it works good for me. Hope it helps you in someway.


$june = [1,1,1,1];
$july = [1,1];
$august = [1,1,1,1];

$months = array(
    'June' => $june, 
    'July' => $july, 
    'August' => $august, 

$daily = [1,1,1,1,5,5,10,10,10,10,2,2,2,2,2];
$sum_arr = array();

$i = 0;
foreach($months as $key=>$month){

    $month_count = $month;
    $month_sum = 0;
    while($month_count > 0){
        $month_sum += $daily[$i];
    $sum_arr[$key] = $month_sum;

echo '<pre>';
