In Google Sheets, PRODUCT is a function that calculates the product of a series of numbers. For example, if you enter the formula =PRODUCT(A1:A10), it will return the product of the numbers in A1 through A10. This can be useful for calculating the total cost of a series of items, or the total revenue generated from a series of sales. PRODUCT can also be used to calculate the factorial of a number, which is the product of all the integers from 1 to that number. For example, the factorial of 5 is 120 (1x2x3x4x5).
PRODUCT takes a list of numbers as input and calculates the product of all the numbers in the list. For example, the following formula inputs the list of numbers 1, 2, and 3 and calculates the product of all the numbers in the list:
The product of 1, 2, and 3 is 6.
In Google Sheets, PRODUCT can be used to multiply a series of numbers together. For example, if you wanted to multiply the numbers 1 through 10, you could use the following formula: =PRODUCT(1:10)
There are a few occasions when you should not use PRODUCT in Google Sheets. One is when you are trying to find the square root of a number. PRODUCT will return the square root of the first number in the parentheses, not the number itself. For instance, if you type in =PRODUCT(9,3), it will return 3, not 27.
Formula Description =PRODUCT(A1:A10,B1:B10) Multiplies the values in A1 through A10 by the values in B1 through B10. =AVERAGE(A1:A10) Calculates the average of the values in A1 through A10. =SUM(A1:A10) Adds the values in A1 through A10.
