# multiplies Struct

Visual Studio 2008

The struct provides a predefined function object that performs the arithmetic operation of multiplication on elements of a specified value type.

```template<class Type>
struct multiplies : public binary_function <Type, Type, Type>
{
Type operator()(
const Type& _Left,
const Type& _Right
) const;
};
```
_Left

A number that is of the parameter type Type that is to be multiplied by the function object.

_Right

A number that is of the parameter type Type that is to be multiplied by the function object.

The product of the multiplication _Left * _Right.

```// functional_multiplies.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
#include <vector>
#include <functional>
#include <algorithm>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main( )
{
vector <int> v1, v2, v3 ( 6 );
vector <int>::iterator Iter1, Iter2, Iter3;

int i;
for ( i = 1 ; i <= 6 ; i++ )
{
v1.push_back( 2 * i );
}

int j;
for ( j = 1 ; j <= 6 ; j++ )
{
v2.push_back( 3 * j );
}

cout << "The vector v1 = ( " ;
for ( Iter1 = v1.begin( ) ; Iter1 != v1.end( ) ; Iter1++ )
cout << *Iter1 << " ";
cout << ")" << endl;

cout << "The vector v2 = ( " ;
for ( Iter2 = v2.begin( ) ; Iter2 != v2.end( ) ; Iter2++ )
cout << *Iter2 << " ";
cout << ")" << endl;

// Finding the element-wise products of the elements of v1 & v2
transform ( v1.begin( ),  v1.end( ), v2.begin( ), v3.begin ( ),
multiplies<int>( ) );

cout << "The element-wise products of vectors V1 & v2\n are: ( " ;
for ( Iter3 = v3.begin( ) ; Iter3 != v3.end( ) ; Iter3++ )
cout << *Iter3 << " ";
cout << ")" << endl;
}
```
The vector v1 = ( 2 4 6 8 10 12 ) The vector v2 = ( 3 6 9 12 15 18 ) The element-wise products of vectors V1 & v2 are: ( 6 24 54 96 150 216 )
