The product is the answer you get when you multiply two numbers. The two numbers are called factors. The number the factors make when you multiply them is called the product

In any addition problem, the numbers which form the "question" are the addends, while the answer is the "sum". In this case, the numbers 1 and 2 are the addends.

In multiplication, the numbers being multiplied to get an answer are called the factors, or the multiplicands. The answer itself is called the product. For example: In the equation a X b = c, a and b are the factors, or the multiplicands, and c is the product.
