Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

First, the "the product of" means to multiply. Therefore we can write "the product of #8# and #z#" as:

#8 xx z# or #8 * z# or what I will use #8z#

We can also write "the product of #6.5# and #y#" as"

#6.5 xx y# or #6.5 * y# or #6.5y#

Now, "plus" means to add so we can add these two products as:

#8z + 6.5y#
