## Multiplication Operator

Dart Arithmetic Multiplication Operator takes two numbers as operands and returns their product.

## Symbol

`*` symbol is used for Multiplication Operator.

## Syntax

The syntax for Multiplication Operator is

`operand_1 * operand_2`

The operands could be of any numeric datatype.

If the two operands are of different datatypes, implicit datatype promotion takes place and value of lower datatype is promoted to higher datatype.

## Examples

### Multiplication of Integers

In the following example, we read two integers from user, and find their product using Arithmetic Multiplication Operator.

main.dart

```import 'dart:io';

void main() {
print('Enter n1');
print('Enter n2');

var output = n1 * n2;

print('n1 * n2 = \$output');
}```

Output

```Enter n1
8
Enter n2
6
n1 * n2 = 48```

### Multiplication of Double Values

In the following example, we read two double values from user, and find their product using Arithmetic Multiplication Operator.

main.dart

```import 'dart:io';

void main() {
print('Enter n1');
print('Enter n2');

var output = n1 * n2;

print('n1 * n2 = \$output');
}```

Output

```Enter n1
3.14
Enter n2
5.1
n1 * n2 = 16.014```

## Conclusion

In this Dart Tutorial, we learned how to use Arithmetic Multiplication Operator to multiply given two numbers.
