Multiply Method

Decimal.Multiply Method (Decimal, Decimal)

 

Multiplies two specified Decimal values.

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

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.

Exception Condition
OverflowException

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

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

// decimal.Remainder methods.
