In Google Sheets, you can multiply numbers or cell contents using the asterisk symbol (*).

**To multiply numbers or cell contents using the asterisk symbol, add an asterisk between the values or cell references in your formula.**

For example, to multiply 2 and 3, you would enter the following formula:

```
=2*3
```

This formula would return the value 6.

To multiply the values in two cells, you would enter the following formula:

```
=A1*A2
```

This formula would return the product of the values in cells A1 and A2.

You can also use the **MULTIPLY** function to multiply numbers or cell contents. The **MULTIPLY** function has the following syntax:

```
=MULTIPLY(number1, number2)
```

For example, to multiply 2 and 3, you would enter the following formula:

```
=MULTIPLY(2,3)
```

This formula would return the value 6.

To multiply the values in two cells, you would enter the following formula:

```
=MULTIPLY(A1,A2)
```

This formula would return the product of the values in cells A1 and A2.

**Here are some additional tips for multiplying in Google Sheets:**
