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

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