You can easily multiply columns in Google Sheets by using functions and formulas in Google Sheets.
Once ready, we’ll get started by utilizing real-world examples to show you how to multiply columns in Google Sheets.
Before we start, you will need to get ready a set of data for us to work on.
You can multiply two cells in a column by using the MULTIPLY function in Google Sheets. You simply key in the MULTIPLY function and select the two cells you want to multiply in the column.
The downside of the MULTIPLY function is that it cannot multiply more than 2 values or cell.
To multiply more than 2 values or cells, you will need to manually key in the formula. To do so, simply key in the equal symbol, select the cell you want to multiply, and enter an asterisk symbol to signify multiplication. Continue this formula until all values are included in the formula.
That’s all there is to it. You are welcome to copy the example spreadsheet below to see how it is done. The most crucial lesson is to enjoy yourself while doing it.
