What kind of cable do I need to stack switches?

I know this should be simple but I haven't been able to find the answer.  I have tried researching it online, on this site, on the site I'm purchasing the switches, and looked at all the manuals that will come with the switch too.  Thanks in advance for your help!!

I am purchasing two Netgear GS724TS ProSafe 24-Port Gigabit Stackable Smart Switches.  I would like to stack them using the ports on the back but I can't find anywhere that tells me exactly what kind of cable(s) I will need to do this?
