First you have to change the permissions of the "qwikLABS" file you downloaded by issuing the following "chmod" command in your Terminal window.
$ chmod 600 ~/Downloads/qwikLABS-XXXXX.perm

Since your downloaded file was "qwikLABS-L625-7298540.perm" your command line should look like this: $ chmod 600 ~/Downloads/qwikLABS--L625-7298540.perm

Then you type out the ssh command like this:
$ ssh -i ~/Downloads/qwikLABS-XXXXX.perm username@External_ip

in your case this should look like this:
$ ssh -i ~/Downloads/qwikLABS--L625-7298540.perm eduit9534657_student@35.232.184.23

This should log you into the remote session. Hope this helps...
