How to Multiply in Google Sheets

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.
