C++ Program to Generate Multiplication Table

Example to generate the multiplication table of a number (entered by the user) using for loop.

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

Example 1: Display Multiplication table up to 10

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    int n;

    cout << "Enter a positive integer: ";
    cin >> n;

    for (int i = 1; i <= 10; ++i) {
        cout << n << " * " << i << " = " << n * i << endl;
    }
    
    return 0;
}

Output

Enter an integer: 5
5 * 1 = 5
5 * 2 = 10
5 * 3 = 15
5 * 4 = 20
5 * 5 = 25
5 * 6 = 30
5 * 7 = 35
5 * 8 = 40
5 * 9 = 45
5 * 10 = 50

This program above computes the multiplication table up to 10 only.

The program below is the modification of above program in which the user is also asked to entered the range up to which multiplication table should be displayed.

Example 2: Display multiplication table up to a given range

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    int n, range;

    cout << "Enter an integer: ";
    cin >> n;

    cout << "Enter range: ";
    cin >> range;
    
    for (int i = 1; i <= range; ++i) {
        cout << n << " * " << i << " = " << n * i << endl;
    }
    
    return 0;
}

Output

Enter an integer: 8
Enter range: 12
8 * 1 = 8
8 * 2 = 16
8 * 3 = 24
8 * 4 = 32
8 * 5 = 40
8 * 6 = 48
8 * 7 = 56
8 * 8 = 64
8 * 9 = 72
8 * 10 = 80
8 * 11 = 88
8 * 12 = 96
