Period multipliedBy() method in Java with Examples

The multipliedBy() method of Period class in Java is used to return a new instance of Period after multiplying ‘X’ (scalar quantity) each element of the period YEAR, MONTH, DAY from given period. This functions operates only on all three YEAR, MONTHS, DAYS.

Syntax:

public Period multipliedBy(int toMultiply)

Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter toMultiply which is the scalar number to be multiplied to the period.



Return Value: This method returns a new instance of Period after multiplying each element of the period with the given toMultiply input.

Exceptions: It throws an ArithmeticException.This exception is caught if numeric overflow occurs.
