# Java Program to multiply two numbers without using * operator

Get two inputs num1 and num2, compute the product of num1 and num2 without using * operator

Sample Input 1:

5 6

Sample Output 1:

30

#### Program or Solution

``` import java.util.*;class MulTab {     public static void main(String args[])     {          int ans=0,i,num,numberoftimes;          System.out.println("Enter The Number Of Times And Table value");          Scanner sc=new Scanner(System.in);          num=sc.nextInt();          numberoftimes=sc.nextInt();          for(i=1;i<=numberoftimes;i++)            { ans+=num;            } System.out.println(ans);      }} ```

#### Program Explanation

1. Get num and numberoftimes

2. Here the logic is add num to ans for numberoftimes

Example

3 * 4 =12

3 + 3 + 3 + 3 =12 (adding 3 for 4 times)

for(i=1;i<=numberoftimes;i++)

3. i is initialized to 1 and incremented by 1. iteration stops when i is greater than               numberoftimes.

4. in each iteration num is added to the ans. ans is initially 0.

5. finally print ans.
