  • Last Updated : 27 Nov, 2018
Geek Week

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.



Below is the implementation of the above method:
Program 1:




// Java code to show the function multipliedBy()
// to multiply the given number to given period
  
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoUnit;
  
public class PeriodClass {
  
    // Function to multiply a constant to given periods
    static void multiply(Period p1, int toMultiply)
    {
        System.out.println(p1.multipliedBy(toMultiply));
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Defining first period
        int year = 4;
        int months = 11;
        int days = 10;
        Period p1 = Period.of(year, months, days);
  
        int toMultiply = 2;
  
        multiply(p1, toMultiply);
    }
}

Program 2:




// Java code to show the function multipliedBy()
// to multiply the given number to given period
  
import java.time.Period;
import java.time.temporal.ChronoUnit;
  
public class PeriodClass {
  
    // Function to multiply a constant to given periods
    static void multiply(Period p1, int toMultiply)
    {
        System.out.println(p1.multipliedBy(toMultiply));
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Defining first period
        int year = -4;
        int months = -11;
        int days = -10;
        Period p1 = Period.of(year, months, days);
  
        int toMultiply = 2;
  
        multiply(p1, toMultiply);
    }
}
