C Program To Multiply Two Floating-Point Numbers

The below C program multiplies two floating numbers using the multiplication operator ( * ).

C




// C program to multiply two
// floating point numbers
#include <stdio.h>
  
// Function to multiply floating point
// numbers
float multiply(float a, float b) 
  return a * b; 
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    float A = 2.12, B = 3.88, product;
  
    // Calling product function
    product = multiply(A, B);
  
    // Displaying result up to 3 decimal places.
    printf("Product of entered numbers is:%.3f", product);
  
    return 0;
}


Output

Product of entered numbers is:8.226
