I try to set a variable with a double value:

$a=2.54;
$b="2.54"

but PHP ignores everything after the point

echo ($a*100) results 200
echo ($b*100) results 200

I tried everything, i thought it might be work (like setting datatype before set the value, ...), but nothing worked.

Works for me just fine. But I think it's some locale
thingie. You might have ',' as the decimal separator.
Try setting the locale correctly:

setlocale(LC_NUMERIC, "en_US"); 

or something like that. Or you ',' as the separator.

try this:

$a=2\.54;
$b="2\.54"

the forward slashes show that "." is not special.
