## Program to Multiply Two Numbers

``````#include <stdio.h>
int main() {
double a, b, product;
printf("Enter two numbers: ");
scanf("%lf %lf", &a, &b);

// Calculating product
product = a * b;

// %.2lf displays number up to 2 decimal point
printf("Product = %.2lf", product);

return 0;
}``````

## Output

Enter two numbers: 2.4
1.12
Product = 2.69

In this program, the user is asked to enter two numbers which are stored in variables a and b respectively.

printf(“Enter two numbers: “);
scanf(“%lf %lf”, &a, &b);
Then, the product of a and b is evaluated and the result is stored in product.

product = a * b;
Finally, product is displayed on the screen using printf().

printf(“Product = %.2lf”, product);
Notice that, the result is rounded off to the second decimal place using %.2lf conversion character.
