# Assembler:Commands:MUL

command mul operand

Performs an unsigned multiplication of two operands.

Multiplies the operand by the accumulator register. Placing the high value in the data register and the low value in the accumulator register.

```AH:AL = AL * operand : byte
DX:AX = AX * operand : WORD
EDX:EAX = EAX * operand : DWORD
RDX:RAX = RAX * operand : QWORD
```

The OF and CF flags are set to 0 if the upper half of the result is 0; otherwise, they are set to 1. The SF, ZF, AF, and PF flags are undefined.

Performs an unsigned multiplication of the first operand (destination operand) and the second operand (source operand) and stores the result in the destination operand. The destination operand is an implied operand located in register AL, AX or EAX (depending on the size of the operand); the source operand is located in a general-purpose register or a memory location. The action of this instruction and the location of the result depends on the opcode and the operand size as shown in the following table.

## Examples

```mul edx
```
```mov eax,2
mov edx,3
mul edx // eax = eax * edx
// edx = 0, eax = 6, edx:eax = 6
```
```mov eax,2
mov ecx,3
mul ecx // eax = eax * ecx
// edx = 0, eax = 6, edx:eax = 6
```
```mov eax,0x10000000
mov edx,0x10
mul edx // eax = eax * edx
// edx = 1, eax = 0, edx:eax = 0x100000000
```
```mov eax,2
mov [00123ABC],3
mul [00123ABC] // eax = eax * [00123ABC]
// edx = 0, eax = 6, edx:eax = 6
```
```mov eax,2
mov [SomeSymbol],3
mul [SomeSymbol] // eax = eax * [SomeSymbol]
// edx = 0, eax = 6, edx:eax = 6
```
