## Swift Multiplication Operator

To perform multiplication of two numbers in Swift, we can use Swift Multiplication Arithmetic operator.

Multiplication Operator `*` takes two numbers as operands and returns the product of the two operands.

### Syntax

The syntax of Multiplication Operator is

`a * b`

where `a` and `b` are left and right operands respectively.

These operands should be of same type. For example,

• `a` and `b` can be Int.
• `a` and `b` can be Float.
• `a` and `b` can be Double, etc.

## Examples

### 1. Multiplication of integer values

In the following program, we will perform multiplication of two integers.

main.swift

```var a = 3
var b = 4
var result = a * b
print("The result is \(result)")```

Output

### 2. Multiplication of Double values

Now, let us find the multiplication of two Double values.

main.swift

```var a = 3.2
var b = 4.1
var result = a * b
print("The result is \(result)")```

Output

### 3. Multiplication of values that belong to different datatypes

If we try to multiply numbers of different types, we would get Swift Compiler Error as shown below.

main.swift

Since `a` is Double and `b` is Int, Multiplication `-` operator raises Compiler Error.

## Conclusion

In this Swift Tutorial, we learned how to perform Multiplication in Swift programming using Multiplication Operator. We have seen the syntax and usage of Multiplication Operator with examples.
