Sorry mind I asked another question here?
So lets say if I want to multiply 34.3 with 23, is it possible to print on the 5th column? Where the 5th column is the total of the first row.

Logitech             My Store   34.3   23  788.9 
Altec Lansing        Partner    45.9   20  918

How do ya put it inside here?

awk -F: '{    printf "%-15s %-10s %6.1f %d\n", $1, $2, $3, $4    }' infile

.width - specify maximum string width or digits to right of decimal point.
f - is a format control letter, it tells the printf statement to print a number in floating-point notation.

Check the GUN awk manual for more details, 5.5 Using printf Statements for Fancier Printing.
