# 3 + x = 4 is the same as 4 = 3 + x. This is an example of which algebraic property?

**Solution:**

The commutative property of addition says that changing the order of addends does not change the sum.

On solving for x, we get 3 + x = 4

⇒ x = 4 - 3 = 1

Here we observe that 3 + 1 = 4 and 4 = 3 + 1

The sum doesn't get altered whatever be the order of addition.

Therefore, 3 + x = 4 is the same as 4 = 3 + x is an example of commutative property.

## 3 + x = 4 is the same as 4 = 3 + x. This is an example of which algebraic property?

**Summary:**

3 + x = 4 is the same as 4 = 3 + x is an example of commutative property.

Sara had 4 red apples in her shopping cart. She met Ruth, who gave her 2 green apples. How many apples does Sara have at the end?

If we add 4 red apples plus 2 green apples, we get 6 apples in total. Similarly, if we add 2 green apples plus 4 red apples, we also get 6 apples in total as an example of commutative property.
