If you are learning C programming, you might have encountered some problems that require you to perform some basic arithmetic operations, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. For example, **how do you multiply two integers in C?** How do you store and display the result?

In this program, I will show you **how to write a simple C program that can accept two integers from the user and calculate the product of the two integers**. You will also learn some basic concepts of C programming, such as variables, data types, operators, input/output and comments.

**What are the steps to multiply two integers in C?**

To multiply two integers in C, we need to follow these steps:

- Declare three integer variables: a, b and product.
- Ask the user to enter the first integer and store it in the variable a.
- Ask the user to enter the second integer and store it in the variable b.
- Multiply the two integers using the * operator and store the result in the variable product.
- Print the result using the printf function.

#### C program

Now that we know the steps to multiply two integers in C, let's write the C program using these steps. **Here is the complete code:**

#include <stdio.h>

int main()

{

int a, b, product;

printf("Enter the first integer: ");

scanf("%d", &a);

printf("Enter the second integer: ");

scanf("%d", &b);

product = a * b; // calculate the product of the two integers

printf("The product of %d and %d is %d\n", a, b, product);

return 0;

}

#### Output

Enter the first integer:5

Enter the second integer:6The product of 5 and 6 is 30

Enter the first integer:-3

Enter the second integer:4The product of -3 and 4 is -12

Enter the first integer:0

Enter the second integer:7The product of 0 and 7 is 0

#### Conclusion

In this program, you learned how to write a C program that can accept two integers from the user and calculate their product. You also learned some basic concepts of C programming, such as variables, data types, operators, input/output and comments.
