U2 command SCAN does just that.

Why not?  The relevant funcs, of course, are SM to add the number
under the cursor and DT to dump the total.  Or you can issue FUNC SM
and FUNC DT from the CMline.  Command CLRSUM clears the total.

For cursor multiplication and division, the CMline is impracticable
because the relevant function, MT, takes an argument.  For that, you
really do need to assign keys: nn=MT* and nn=MT/.
