# Definition of Multiplicand

A **multiplicand** is the number that gets multiplied when you are doing multiplication.

The number that does the multiplying is called the "multiplier".

However, these terms are confusing because you can perform a multiplication in any order you like. So, the term "factor" is more commonly used to refer to both the "multiplicand" and the "multiplier".
