It depends how many cycles you want the result in. You could use just one if you have multiple cycles, or you might want 4 if you want a 16-bit result.

jbeniston is referring to sequential multiply algorithms which are most likely not your focus.

know how to know this
I think remembering some secondary school mathematics can help. (a+b)(c+d) = ac + ad + ...

You get 4 product terms, the same with your problem. I presume you know that adders are required, too.
