    Latex problem with dot multiplying two numbers

    When I try to dot multiply two numbers, say 2\cdot3 which is 2 times 3, I get an error message (of course my lead is math and my end is /math enclosed within the brackets). What else do I need to do?

    make sure there is a space between \cdot and the 3 maybe? 2\cdot 3

    Use a space.
    [tex]2\cdot 3[/tex] gives 2\cdot 3.
