# How do you find the product of 9m-9p?

Sep 15, 2017

Factoring yields: $9 \left(m - p\right)$
Given: $9 m - 9 p$
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: $9 \left(m - p\right)$
