# &*(_:_:)

Returns the product of the two given values, wrapping the result in case of any overflow.

Available because

`Self`

conforms to`FixedWidthInteger`

.

`static func &* (lhs: Self, rhs: Self) -> Self`

## Parameters

- lhs
The first value to multiply.

- rhs
The second value to multiply.

## Overview

The overflow multiplication operator (`&*`

) discards any bits that overflow the fixed width of the integer type. In the following example, the product of `10`

and `50`

is greater than the maximum representable `Int8`

value, so the result is the partial value after discarding the overflowing bits.

```
let x: Int8 = 10 &* 5
// x == 50
let y: Int8 = 10 &* 50
// y == -12 (after overflow)
```
