## The Convert Function in
Excel.

By tying in `=convert(x,"from_unit_y","to_unit_z")`

,
you will be converting the quantity x given in unit y to unit z.

For example, typing `=convert(600,"w","kw")`

will give you
the equivalent of 600 watts in 0.6 kilowatts.

## Multiply Numbers In A Cell

To do this task, use the ***** (asterisk) arithmetic operator.

For example, if you type **=5*10** in a cell, the cell
displays the result, **50**.

In the above example, if 5 is in cell **A1** and 10 is
in cell **B1**, you may also calculate the produce by
**=A1*B1**.

## Divide Numbers In A Cell

To do this task, use the **/** (forward slash)
arithmetic operator.

For example, if you type **=10/5** in a cell, the cell
displays **2**.

In the above example, if 5 is in cell **A1** and 10 is
in cell **B1**, you may also calculate the produce by
**=B1/A1**.
