A Short Tutorial on How to Multiply in Excel
Multiplication in Excel can be performed by typing a formula containing the numbers you wish to multiply or by multiplying the numbers contained within cells in your spreadsheet.
For the first method you can just click on any cell within a spreadsheet and type an = sign followed by a number you wish to multiply followed by an * sign and then hit the enter key on your keyboard or click the check mark √ on the formula bar.
For the second method click on cell A1 and type a number. Click on cell A2 and type another number. In cell A3 type the formula =A1*A2 and then hit the enter key on your keyboard or click the check mark √ on the formula bar.
