# (-5) × (-7) is same as (-7) × (-5). State whether the following statement is True or False

**Solution:**

The given expression follows the properties of integers and the commutative property of multiplication.

The commutative property of multiplication states that the product of two or more numbers remains the same irrespective of the way they are grouped.

To prove that (-5) × (-7) is the same as (-7) × (-5).

According to the rule of integers we have.

= (-5) × (-7) = (-7) × (-5)

We will use the rule of integers, (-) × (-) = +

= 35 = 35

Therefore, (-5) × (-7) is the same as (-7) × (-5)

**✦ Try This: **(8) × (-5) is same as (-5) × (8)

The given expression follows the commutative property of multiplication. Therefore, (8) × (-5) is the same as (-5) × (8)
