Without it, Excel will treat what you type in as a number, date or text. What you type will then literally appear in the cell. All functions start with letters. If the first thing you type is a letter, then it would be treated as text. The equals sign tells Excel to do the calculation that follows it. If you try typing any formula or function without an equals sign it will just appear in the cell and not do a calculation.
