How do I set the variable product to be a multiple of the variables a and b, if a is 6 and b is 2?

I've tried several different things and all are counted wrong. Video did not specifically cover this.

variable.rb
a = 6
b = 2

Charles, it's a bit confusing, I admit. They just want you to create a variable named product and then assign it the product of a and b::

a = 6
b = 2
product = a * b

Awesome, thanks!
