What does the challenge want me to do? Q: Set the variable product to be a multiple of the variables a and b.

I have tried setting c to equal the product of a * b and have written out c = a * b as well. I am not sure what it is they want me to do.

a = 6
b = 2

Instead of using c, you should use the variable it is looking for:

Set the variable **product**

Okay thank you so much! On my laptop, i couldn't tell the difference in color for the "a", "b", and "product" so I was stumped. Thanks again for the quick response.
