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

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.
