need help making a simple, (adding and multiplying) formulaic spreadsheet.

where can I go for in depth instructions?

Go to:

Applications > Office > Openoffice.org Spreadsheet

Now, lets say you type in 2 to the cell A1 and 3 into the cell B1

in cell c1 put: =A1+B1
this adds the contents of cell a1 and b1

in cell d1 put: =A1*B1
this multiplies the contents of cell a1 with the contents of cell b1.

This is ofcourse, very basic.
