So I’ve figured out the 3 words and the number that goes with each word, but can’t get how the equation goes.

Number x number = number.
This isn’t making sense to me
Help please

This is fairly straightforward, and below is a list of graded hints leading to the solution. It assumes you know keys 46, 49, and 52. If you don't know them, don't continue.
Spoiler!
1) Ignoring the symbols and patterns on the page, this puzzle requires you to use 3 clues (from the keys) to identify certain 4 letter words in the grid with their associated numeric value, and then multiply those values together to get a 6-digit number as the answer.
Spoiler!
2) The keywords for the equation are ['no light' X 'great heat' X 'end of maze' = ]. There are 3 four-letter words in the grid that match them: 'dark' (hidden vertically), 'fire', and 'exit'.
Spoiler!
3) The words' numeric equivalent is the two digit number that comes after the word (or below it if it's vertical). Dark=31, Fire=72, and Exit=94. Multiply them together.
And the final answer is:

The multiplication given does not add up to the answer given. If you multiply the 3 numbers the value given as the answer is incorrect.

Doh! I had the numbers backward in the 3rd key. Edited the post to fix. Thanks for the heads up!
