Doing math on a selection of cells in Excel

Why do I keep forgetting this?  To do math on a selection of cells in Excel (like making all the numbers negative for example)

  • type the new number in a blank cell (-1 for this example),
  • copy it
  • select the cells you want to do the math to
  • pick paste special
  • pick the correct math function under "Operation" (Multiply for this example)
  • Click ok
