"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Two questions...

1. Multiply by what? The value in column C by the value in column C, i.e. the square of the value in column C?
2. What do you want to return if the vale is not zero?

The below formula assumes you wish to multiply the value in column C by 2 if the value in column A is zero. If the value in column A is not zero, return zero.

=IF(A2=0, C2*2, 0)
