@mikezotto92,
A product is the result of multiplication. Do do so, simplify the equations you've given to find the product.

cross multipy x2-1 with 3x-3 and x+1 with x+3 and then reduce.

Those are fractions, not equations.

Cross multiplication would be correct if the fractions were given as being equal.

To multiply fractions, you multiply the top numbers (numerators) and put the product as the new numerator, and multiply the bottom numbers (denominators) and put the product as the new denominator.

For example: 3/4 times 5/8 would be 15/32.
