Re: maths product

The definition of product is simply multiplication!
So, the product of 6 and 5 would be 30, since 6x5=30, and the product of 12 and 4 would be 48, since 12x4=48.

I hope this was what you needed.

Re: maths product

You need two numbers for a product!

You can't say "the product of 6". What this means is

6 ×

It doesn't make sense! You need another number to multiply with!

For example, "the product of 6 and 3" is

6 × 3 = 18

And "the product of 6 and 6" is

6 × 6 = 36

Re: maths product

Multiply them all together, similar to how you'd find the product of two.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: maths product

You can multiply the 3 numbers together in any order you want.
So 2 x 3 x 4 is 2 x 3 or 6, then times 4 is 24.
Or
you can do 4 x 2 is 8 and then times 3 is 24.

Re: maths product

Presumably it wants you to find 1x2x3x4x5x6x7x8x9x10x11x12x13x14x15, also known as "15!".

Re: maths product

Can somebody help me with this riddle

A man doing a survey asks a woman. "how many children do you have a what ages are they?"
She says, "I have 3 children, the product of their ages is the same as the house next door".
After looking next door, he says "Ineed more info."
She says "I've got to go... my oldest chils is calling me"
He says "Thank you, I have everything i need."
What are their ages?


I dont get it, somebody help me!

Re: maths product

Obviously, the product of the ages (or the number next door) must be a perfect square of a prime, let say n^2, so that the only possible combination of factors would be 1,n,n or 1,1,n^2. That's why the surveyor can't tell after the first answer but can after the second. So, n^2 can be 4,9,25 etc and the ages 1,1,4 , 1,1,9 , 1,1,25 etc.

Re: maths product

Hi Marcus Winter;

x² is a product of a number multiplied by itself.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

it actually doesn't equall fifteen it equals 3026144400. becuase you have to find out what 1*2 is and the product of that *3 and the product of that #4 and the product of that *5 and keep going until you get to the product of 15. smile

Re: maths product

Hi lfjsdjk;

Welcome to the forum!

That is not quite correct. Mathsyperson did not say 15, he said 15!. That is pronounced 15 factorial. It equals 1 307 674 368 000.
