Multiplying

Multiplication in LIGO is accomplished by means of the * binary operator which is overloaded to apply to any combination of natural numbers and integers, as shown in the following examples. The type rules for multiplication are the same as for the addition:

const a : int = 5 * 10; // int * int yields int
const b : nat = 5n * 2n; // nat * nat yields nat
const c : int = 10n * 5; // nat * int yields int
const d : int = 5 * 10n; // int * nat yields int
