You do the multiplication in exactly the same way. The only extra thing is that when multiplying decimals, you need to place the decimal point (or decimal comma - depending on your country) in the correct position. If one number has, for example, 3 digits after the decimal point, and the other 4, you need to place the decimal point in the result (BEFORE eliminating unnecessary zeros) in such a way that there are, in this example, 7 digits (3 + 4) to the right of the decimal point.
