# C program to multiply two numbers using plus operator

This program will read two integer numbers and find the multiplication of them using arithmetic plus (+) operator. We will not use multiplication operator here to multiply the numbers.

Example:

```    Input:
Enter first number: 10
Enter second number: 4

Output:
Multiplication of 10 and 4 is: 40

Logic:
Multiplying first number (10), second number (4) times
Multiplication is = 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 40
```

To find multiplication of two number - Here, we are using a loop that will run second number times and adding the first number.

For example: if we want to multiply 10 and 4 then either we can add 10, 4 times or we can add 4, 10 times.

## Multiplication of two numbers using plus (+) operator

```/*C program to multiply two numbers using plus operator.*/

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
int a,b;
int mul,loop;

printf("Enter first number: ");
scanf("%d",&a);
printf("Enter second number: ");
scanf("%d",&b);

mul=0;

for(loop=1;loop<=b;loop++){
mul += a;
}

printf("Multiplication of %d and %d is: %d\n",a,b,mul);

return 0;
}
```

Output

```    Enter first number: 10
Enter second number: 4
Multiplication of 10 and 4 is: 40
```
