### [Solved] Increase multiplication by column

I'm looking for a function to increse my multiplyer with each column.

Example:
 Edit:

C1=B1+A1
D1=B1+A1*2
E1=B1+A1*3

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.

### Re: Increase multiplication by column

Tip1:
Use the cell from the row 2. Then you can insert the multiplier constants into the row 1
C2=B2+A2*\$C\$1
D2=B2+A2*\$D\$1
E2=B2+A2*\$E\$1

Tip2:
Use the function COLUMN() with an offset value to create the multiplier.

C1=B1+A1*(COLUMN()-2)
D1=B1+A1*(COLUMN()-2)
E1=B1+A1*(COLUMN()-2)

Thank you very much, I don't know why I didn't think of the constants, that worked like a charm.
