# The Excel function: PRODUCT

## Description

The **PRODUCT** function multiplies all the numbers given as arguments and returns the product. For example, if cells A1 and A2 contain numbers, you can use the formula **=****PRODUCT(****A1, A2)** to multiply those two numbers together. You can also perform the same operation by using the multiply (*****) mathematical operator; for example, **=A1 * A2**.

The **PRODUCT** function is useful when you need to multiply many cells together. For example, the formula **=****PRODUCT(****A1:A3, C1:C3)** is equivalent to **=A1 * A2 * A3 * C1 * C2 * C3**.
