Result of a multiplication operation.
In a very general way, this term represents the result of a multiplication operation in which the quantities can be numbers, algebraic expressions, sets, vectors, functions, etc. If the multiplication has numbers as quantities it is an arithmetic product of two numbers. If the quantities are algebraic expressions, it is an algebraic product.
- In the operation “5 × 9 = 45”, the number 45 is the product and the numbers 5 and 9 are the factors.
- In the operation “0.3 × 0.25 = 0.075”, the number 0.075 is the product.
