These are 4 steps to create multiplication table of 12 x 12 from google spread sheet. This is to get you familia with basic google spread sheet and the magic \$ sign. You can play around with the \$ by putting it in front of column and row. For example, \$B\$2, B\$2 or \$B2 and see what happens to the result.

Note:
The \$ sign will lock the position of the cell, i.e A1, B1, C1.....

• \$B\$2 will lock the whole cell, when you try to copy it to a new cell it will not change with column or row
• B\$2 will only lock the row of that cell position while the column will keep changing.
• \$B2 will only lock the column of that cell position while the row will keep changing.

1. Key in number 1 to 12 from A2 to M2 as the image below
