Excel - PRODUCT function for multiplying

Syntax: = PRODUCT (number 1, number 2, ...)

Function: multiply number 1, number 2, ect

In Which:

- Number 1, number 2, ..., number n. n can be up to 255. (For Excel 2003, n can only be up to 30).

- If the number is in an area of data, only the values ​​are multiplied, the value of other numbers will be ignored.

Example 1: Multiply the number 2, 3, 4.

The formula: = PRODUCT (2, 3, 4) = 24.

- Multiply the number 3, 5, 0.

The formula: = PRODUCT (3, 5, 0) = 0.

Example 2: Multiply column in the data table below:

Apply PRODUCT in each column:

- A5 = PRODUCT (A1: A4); B5 = PRODUCT (B1: B4); C5 = PRODUCT (C1: C4)

I have the result:

- A5 is 108 for 4 * 3 * 9 = 108. Ignore the value "b" because the PRODUCT function only receives reference to the data area.

- B5 is 10 because 5 * 2 = 10. Ignore value ​​"a" and calculate B2 as 1.

- C5 is 0 is 0 since value in C2 is 0.

Example 3: Calculate salary (Salary) of employees in Employees table. Knowing that Salary is the product of Hourly Salary and Hour.

- Calculation 1: = E5 * F5 G5.

- Calculation 2 (apply PRODUCT function): G5 = PRODUCT (E5, F5)

- Double-click on the bottom right of G5 to copy the formula to the remaining cells.

PRODUCT is a function that multiplies numbers, similar to * (multiplication) in Excel. Instead of typing each number and add an * in the mid to calculate their area, we can use the PRODUCT function to multiply all the values quickly.
