Product always means you're going to multiply, the sum means
addition.
"What is the product of five" means that what ever the sum of 4
and -6 is we're going to multiply that by 5.
So we have 5 x _____
Now "and the sum of 4 and -6", mean's we're going to add 4 and
-6 together.
So we now have 5 x (4 + (-6))
The problem is now written out, let's do the math. Remember

5 x (4 + (-6)) = 5 x (-2) = -10.
