It says: lonnie has to find out the product of 7 and 4. She has already multiplied 7 and 4 and knows she has 28 ones. What should she do next?

# What Is the Product of a Math Problem?

In a mathematics problem, the term product is used to mean the results of two or more digits when multiplied. For example the product of 2 and 4 is 8.

Lol so why is it asking what she should do next? Are they asking to write out a sentance (7x4=28)?

Maybe they're looking for "two Tens and eight ones"

Check her work?

This is possible since my dd is in 2nd grade and they have to break down their addition/subtraction problems.  I would contact her teacher for more instructions or help in regards to the math work.
