What is this really asking? "Set the variable product to be a multiple of the variables a and b."

In previous step I defined: a = 6 b = 2

So I figured maybe I was supposed to do: c = a*b

That didn't do it though. Not sure I really understand the question

hey : the challenge wants you to name the varibale "product" !

a = 6
b = 2

product = a * b

quotient = product / 3

Oh jeez, I knew it had to be something obvious like that! Thanks
