Sorry Im not good in math, can you please help me?

a = 6
b = 2
product = a*b

What you have so far is correct for the first step of the challenge. What specifically is your question?

2 Answers

This is saying product is equal to a (which is 6) multiplied by b (which is 2). So product = 12, but what is it asking you to do?

This is plugging "a", which equals six, in to the "a" place in the equation and the same for "b". If you are looking for the answer to "a*b" it is 12 because "a" = 6 and "b" = 2 2 multiplied by 6 equals twelve
