 C Program to Multiply Two Floating-Point Numbers

# C Program to Multiply Two Floating-Point Numbers

#### In this example, the product of two floating-point numbers entered by the user is calculated and printed on the screen.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of the following C programming topics:

## 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;

// Result up to 2 decimal point is displayed using %.2lf
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.
