Excel Spreadsheet Formula HELP!

By alphaeba2233 ·
This will probaby seem like a very elementary question but I want to create a formula that will take each value i put into a cell and mulitply it by 1.175 i.e.

answer = cell X 1.175

obviously i don't know excel but it seems like the formulas you put in have to be multiplying one cell by another to get the product.

hope this makes sense! pls use simple words when replying lol.

The leading equal-sign makes everything else interpreted as a formula. You can use + - / * and parentheses in conventional algebraic ways. You can also use Excel's many functions in your formula for more complicated numeric (or textual) manipulations.
