can some one get me started on this c++ assignment.

This lab is mainly an output-formatting exercise. It does require that you know how to develop the product of two integers, without using a calculator.

Problem statement

Write a program that multiplies two 4-digit positive integers and prints their product in the format below. Your program should ask the user to type the two numbers, then read them in. As an example, the product of 4560 and 4334 should produce the following output.

Notice that the alignment should be the same as you’d get if you multiplied the numbers using a pencil and paper.

4560

x 4334

---------

18240

13680

13680

18240

---------

19753920

You have to pull out the digits of the top number. 1000th digit is ‘4’. So you’d then multiply ‘4’ time 4334. There are different ways of solving this.
