In Go, values can be many things. Just to name a few, values can be numbers (like `109`

), or text wrapped in quotes (like `"Hello world"`

). These values can be written into code as is, and are called *literals*. They are literally what they say they are.

We can perform arithmetic in Go with literals (or named values, covered in the next exercise) using the following operators:

`+`

to add`-`

to subtract`*`

to multiply`/`

to divide`%`

to take the remainder (the*modulus operator*) between two numbers.

fmt.Println(20 * 3) // Prints: 60 fmt.Println(55.21 / 5) // Prints: 11.042 fmt.Println(9 % 2) // Prints: 1

Imagine the code above as appearing inside the `main`

function body of a Go program. In this snippet, we used the Go programming language as a calculator. We printed out the product of multiplying `20`

and `3`

(`60`

). We next printed out the quotient of dividing `55.21`

by `5`

(`11.042`

). We lastly printed out the remainder left over after dividing `9`

by `2`

(`9`

divided by `2`

has a remainder of `1`

).

### Instructions

**1.**

In **main.go**, add a line that prints out the result of `2235`

multiplied by `1231`

.
