How do I answer this......Barry says 9x8x(any other number) will always be greater than the product of 2x9x4. Do you agree? Explain?

nah.
"any number" can be negative 
9 x 8 x any number = 72 x any number
2 x 9 x 4 = 72
the second one the FINAL answer is 72
the first one will be higher
if you multiply 72 by any other number but 1, because 72 x 1 = 72, then they will be equal
but if any number is greater than 1, then the first will be higher
I hope you can understand 
but ....
what if the "any other number " is a proper fraction?
so the "any other number" has to be > 1
