The Commutative Property of Multiplication


Question: What is an example of the commutative property of multiplication?

The Commutative Property of Multiplication says that the order in which we multiply the numbers does not change the final product.

Answer: 5 × 7 = 7 × 5 = 35 is an example of the commutative property of multiplication.

Let's discuss the commutative property of multiplication.

Explanation:

Example of commutative property of multiplication

Let a and b be two numbers

According to commutative property of multiplication,

a × b = b × a

for example,

if a = 5 and b = 7

5 × 7 = 7 × 5 = 35

Thus, according to the example we see that changing the order of the numbers in multiplication does not change the value.
