In my programming class, we need to write a program where the user is prompted for a value. Once that value is provided, the program is supposed to multiply its digits. For example: if the user typed 1234, it would multiply 1*2*3*4 and give the answer. I'm not sure how to multiply the digits and my teacher mentioned using a while loop.

This problem is really simple:
1. You can loop python strings like anyway other container.
2. You can convert a digit string ("1") to an integer (1) using int()

I'm not even going to tell you how to do the rest. Go ahead and prove that you aren't lazy.
