Namespace:   System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

## Syntax

```public static decimal Multiply(
decimal d1,
decimal d2
)
```

#### Parameters

d1
Type: System.Decimal

The multiplicand.

d2
Type: System.Decimal

The multiplier.

#### Return Value

Type: System.Decimal

The result of multiplying d1 and d2.

## Exceptions

Exception Condition
OverflowException

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

## Examples

The following code example creates several pairs of Decimal values and calculates their products with the Multiply method.

```// Example of the decimal.Multiply, decimal.Divide, and
// decimal.Remainder methods.
using System;
using Microsoft.VisualBasic;

class DecimalMulDivRemDemo
{
const string dataFmt = "{0,-35}{1,31}";

// Display decimal parameters and their product, quotient, and
// remainder.
public static void ShowDecimalProQuoRem( decimal Left, decimal Right )
{
Console.WriteLine( );
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal Left", Left );
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal Right", Right );
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal.Multiply( Left, Right )",
decimal.Multiply( Left, Right ) );
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal.Divide( Left, Right )",
decimal.Divide( Left, Right ) );
Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "decimal.Remainder( Left, Right )",
decimal.Remainder( Left, Right ) );
}
