Is there a way to ask a #Math problem with replaceable values?

 

For example, I could ask "The teacher gives 3 stickers each to 4 students. How many stickers did the teacher give out?" and the answer is fixed at 12.

 

But I want the numbers 3 and 4 to be different each time. So is there a way to ask something like "The teacher gives [a] stickers each to [b] students. How many stickers did the teacher give out?" where [a] can be any of {2, 3, 4} and [b] can be any of {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9} and the answer is set at a*b ?
