Hi Prakash,

This one could get complicated! First things first, you won't have much luck putting PHP code into a WordPress page's HTML editor, it has to be done either in the template of via registered shortcode.

As for creating that shortcode, check out this tutorial on writing a plugin.

Lastly, if you're not necessarily looking for development practice, you could always install a pre-built plugin to do the work for you.
