For this problem, the word "product" suggests multiplication. Let's expand the fraction:

${\left(\frac{3}{5}\right)}^{2} = \left(\frac{3}{5}\right) \cdot \left(\frac{3}{5}\right)$

To multiply a fraction, simple multiply the numerators (the number that appears above the line) and the denominators (the number that appears below the line).

${\left(\frac{3}{5}\right)}^{2} = \frac{3 \cdot 3}{5 \cdot 5} = \frac{9}{25}$
