$3 \cdot 4 = 12$

#### Explanation:

Whenever you see "Product", think "Multiplication". Actually, there's a chart for this stuff.

• Sum: Addition

• Difference: Subtraction

• Product: Multiplication

• Quotient: Division.

Since it's the product of 3 and 4, it's the multiplication of 3 and 4.
Similarly, if you had to find the "Difference of 3 and 1", it would be the "Subtraction of 3 and 1", or $3 - 1 = 2$.
