Math has its own language that includes common English words and specific mathematical terms. Some common words have specific meanings in math.

## Definitions

In mathematical terms, product means the number obtained by multiplying two numbers. Multiplication equations are typically written as: 3 x 4 = 12. In this case, 12 is the product of 3 times 4. You can also say that 12 is the product of 3 and 4.

## Considerations

The order in which you multiply the numbers does not matter. The product will be the same. For example, the product of 3 times 4 is 12 and the product of 4 times 3 is 12.

## Examples

You can obtain the same product from different combinations of numbers. For example, the product of 6 and 2 is 12. The product of 3 and 4 is also 12. If you multiply any number by 1, the product is that number. For example, the product of 1 and 12 is 12.
