This is because the equal sign is used to indicate that the content of the cell is a formula or equation, rather than just a regular text entry. The equal sign tells the spreadsheet software to calculate the result of the equation based on the values and functions entered after it. Without the equal sign, the content of the cell will be treated as plain text.
