Challenge task on product return

I am having a difficult time answering this challenge question: . I need you to write a function named product. It should take two arguments, you can call them whatever you want, and then multiply them together and return the result.

can someone provide an example i could follow along with? that would be very much appreciated, thank you!

the structure of a python function is the def keyword, the function name, the parameter list (if any) and the body of the function, ending with the return statement. so:

def funcName(param 1, param 2...) body return

here they just want a function that takes two numbers and multiplies them together, returning the product.
