Setting the variable product

I thought I set the variable correctly, but I keep getting an error message. After trying c = 12, a * b = c, and c = a * b, I'm not exactly sure how to do this exercise correctly.

variable.rb
a = 6
b = 2

I found the answer in another thread. They want you to set the product variable to a * b

product = a * b
