I pick two whole numbers $x$ and $y$ between $1$ and $10$ inclusive (not necessarily distinct). My friend picks two numbers $x -4$ and $2y-1$. If the product of my friend's numbers is one greater than the product of my numbers, then what is the product of my numbers?

$$x = 9 \text{ and } y = 6 \\ xy = 54$$

The product of my numbers is 54.
