# Python - How to Multiply Floats

Multiplying floats in Python is easy. You just multiply them the same way you would integers. The result will be a float. It works completly intuitively. For example in the following code snippet we multiply to float variables ‘a’ and ‘b’ which results in ‘c’ which is also a float.

```
a = 12.4
b = 5.24
c = a * b
print(c)
```

If you like you can also print out the type for each variable involved. This confirms that they are all floats and that it works exactly as you would expect.

```
a = 12.4
b = 5.24
c = a * b
print(type(a),type(b),type(c))
print(c)
```
