I'm quit new in all this so can you help me?

I'm running wordpress site and I've got in my MySql database table named price_table and it has two columns: name, price

I need variable to be found in the table column name and if it exists there, return price values form that row.

Something like this:

$value = "com";
$sql = $wpdb->get_var( "SELECT * FROM $wpdb->price_table WHERE name = '$value'");

echo $sql->price;

Please help me how to do it right?

You can use get_row or get_results for getting records from database:

With get_row:

$sql = $wpdb->get_row( "SELECT * FROM $wpdb->price_table WHERE name = '$value'");

if($wpdb->num_rows > 0){
   echo $sql->price;

With get_results:

$sql = $wpdb->get_results( "SELECT * FROM $wpdb->price_table WHERE name = '$value'");
if($wpdb->num_rows > 0){
  foreach ($sql as $result) {
    echo $result->price;
