In this Java examples of Java tutorial, we will study about Java multiply operator with example. We will study what is the use of Java multiply operator.

## Java Multiply operator

Java multiply operator is used to multiply the two numbers . Java multiply operator is written as

X * Y • Here X and Y are two numbers • * is the java multiply operator.

## Java Multiply operator Example

Let’s understand Java multiply operator with example.

public class JavaExamples { public static void main(String[] args) { //Java multiply operator with example in Java int firstNumber=20; int secondNumber=10; int result=firstNumber * secondNumber; System.out.print("result is:"+result); } }

**output**

result is:200

**Explanation**

In above Java multiply operator program, `firstNumber`

and `secondNumber`

are two integer variables. We applied Java multiply operator on these two numbers. We save the result in `result`

variable.

In this Java operators with example, we saw how Java multiply operator works with example.
