Answer:

#p xx q =pq#

Explanation:

The key word to note is 'product'. A product is the answer to a multiplication operation.
The product of 3 and 4 means #3 xx 4 = 12#
12 is the product.

In this question we are working with algebra, but it means the same.
The product of #p and q# means #p xx q =pq#

The product is #pq#. This is an algebraic term which cannot be simplified further and cannot be evaluated unless you know the values for #p and q#
