The field values you are pulling back are objects, not simple numbers.  You need to convert the contents to numbers before you can multiply them together (and bear in mind they might be nulls too, which you'll want to capture and handle)

but price and numbers fields is number type, still need convert???

Look at the error message you showed in your original before you changed the question - the error was saying that the calls to get the field data had returned an object, not a number.

So yes, you need to convert the objects returned into numbers.  (Trying to multiply objects tends not work - yes the  objects you get from the fields might be "4" and "5", but they might also be "banana" and "apple", and there's no way to know what you might want from multiplying those together)
