In the previous article, we have discussed about Java Program on Subtraction Operator

In this article we will see the use of Multiplication operator in Java.

## Java Program on Multiplication Operator

Multiplication operator is a binary operator and it is used to multiply two numbers. Multiplication operator is represented by the `*`

symbol.

Syntax: operand * operand

**Example:**

Let’s understand it more clearly.

Suppose we have 2 variables a and b.

a=2

b=13

Then we can use multiplication operator like this.

result=a*b; // here 2 variable operands are multiplied

(or)

result = 15 * a; // here one constant operand i.e. 15 and variable operand i.e. ‘`a`

‘ multiplied

**Program:**

import java.io.*; class Main { public static void main(String[] args) { //Declaring variables int number1 = 100; int number2 = 2; //multiplying two numbers by using multiplication operator int result = number1*number2; //print results System.out.println("By performing multiplication operation: " + result); } }

Output: By performing multiplication operation: 200
