By default, WordPress doesn’t allow you to run PHP code in posts or pages. The recommended way to add PHP functions is to modify the child theme or create custom page templates.
Despite so, there are occasions where you might want to add specific PHP functions to an individual post or page. In these cases, you can override the rule using WordPress code widget plugins.
The following tutorial will guide you through the process of using the Insert PHP Code Snippet plugin to add PHP code directly to a WordPress post or page.
Before diving into the tutorial, make sure you have installed and activate the Insert PHP Code Snippet plugin. Check this tutorial for a thorough instruction on how to install and activate a WordPress plugin properly.
Just because WordPress doesn’t allow you to run PHP code in a post or page, it’s not impossible to do so. Using WordPress code widget plugins, you can add various PHP functions to your posts or pages easily.

I did exactly as you say but it doesn't work. It shows this message: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘&’ in /home/nt435/public_html/wp-content/plugins/insert-php/insert_php.php(48) : eval()’d code on line 3
