Answer:

There is no product.
Factoring yields: #9(m-p)#

Explanation:

Given: #9m - 9p#

Find the product means find the answer to a multiplication between two numbers. The expression given is not a multiplication, it is a subtraction. Since #m# and #p# are different, they can not be subtracted. The only thing that can be done is factoring.

Factoring yields: #9(m-p)#
