6&162


x & y
x=1/3*1/9*y=1/27*y
xy=972 => x=972/y
y/27=972/y => y=162 => x=6

If we have four positive numbers a, b, c and d, there are six ways to multiply the pairs i.e. a*b, a*c, a*d, b*d and c*d. If we tell you the result of five of them without telling you which one is the product of which pair as 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

What is the remaining product?
