Description:
this is a sum of some floats numbers...
Je fais la somme de nombre flotants,

each float is a price
chaque float est un prix

and each float have just two numbers forward the "," like this preg : "/^[0-9]+,[0-9]{0,2}$/"
et chaque float n'a que deux nombres apr├Ęs la virgule, comme cette preg : "/^[0-9]+,[0-9]{0,2}$/"

mysql> SELECT prix FROM passage_liste WHERE prix%1!=0;
+-------+
| prix  |
+-------+
|  40.5 |
|  14.5 |
[...]
|  89.5 |
|  30.6 |
+-------+
69 rows in set (0.00 sec)

but this sum of floats is not like I wait... there are more than two numbers forward the ,...
mysql> SELECT SUM(prix) FROM passage_liste;

| SUM(prix)       |
+-----------------+
| 10751.900011063 |
