# Decimal.Multiply(Decimal, Decimal)Decimal.Multiply(Decimal, Decimal)Decimal.Multiply(Decimal, Decimal)Decimal.Multiply(Decimal, Decimal) Operator

## Definition

Multiplies two specified Decimal values.

``````public:
static System::Decimal operator *(System::Decimal d1, System::Decimal d2);``````
``public static decimal operator * (decimal d1, decimal d2);``
``static member ( * ) : decimal * decimal -> decimal``
``Public Shared Operator * (d1 As Decimal, d2 As Decimal) As Decimal``

#### Parameters

d1
Decimal Decimal Decimal Decimal

The first value to multiply.

d2
Decimal Decimal Decimal Decimal

The second value to multiply.

#### Returns

The result of multiplying `d1` by `d2`.

#### Exceptions

The return value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

## Remarks

The Multiply method defines the operation of the multiplication operator for Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

``````using System;

public class Example
{
public static void Main()
{
Decimal number1 = 16.8m;
Decimal number2 = 4.1m;
Decimal number3 = number1 * number2;
Console.WriteLine("{0:N2} x {1:N2} = {2:N2}",
number1, number2, number3);
}
}
// The example displays the following output:
//        16.80 x 4.10 = 68.88
``````
``````Module Example
Public Sub Main()
Dim number1 As Decimal = 16.8d
Dim number2 As Decimal = 4.1d
Dim number3 As Decimal = number1 * number2
Console.WriteLine("{0:N2} x {1:N2} = {2:N2}",
number1, number2, number3)
End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       16.80 x 4.10 = 68.88
``````

If the language you're using doesn't support custom operators, call the Multiply method instead.

The equivalent method for this operator is Decimal.Multiply(Decimal, Decimal)
