## Description

It is a multiplication function object class and binary function object class whose call returns the result of multiplying its two arguments (as returned by operator *).

## Declaration

Following is the declaration for std::multiplies.

```template <class T> struct multiplies;
```

### C++11

```template <class T> struct multiplies;
```

## Parameters

T − It is a type of the arguments and return type of the functional call.

none

## Exceptions

noexcep − It doesn't throw any exceptions.

## Example

In below example explains about std::multiplies.

```#include <iostream>
#include <functional>
#include <numeric>

int main () {
int numbers[9];
int factorials[9];
for (int i=0;i<9;i++) numbers[i]=i+1;
std::partial_sum (numbers, numbers+9, factorials, std::multiplies<int>());
for (int i=0; i<5; i++)
std::cout << "factorial of " << numbers[i] << "! is " << factorials[i] << '\n';
return 0;
}
```

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −

```factorial of 1! is 1
factorial of 2! is 2
factorial of 3! is 6
factorial of 4! is 24
factorial of 5! is 120
```
