# Math Help - Latex problem with dot multiplying two numbers

1. ## 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?

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

Use a space.
$$2\cdot 3$$ gives $2\cdot 3$.

Thanks everyone.
