Which equation is an example of the commutative property of multiplication?
Mathematically, we can define any binary operation as a commutative one, if changing the order of the operands does not change the result of the operation.
Answer: 2 × 5 = 5 × 2. This is an example of the commutative property of multiplication.
A process is called commutative if changing the operands while using the process doesn't affect the final outcome
The process of multiplication is always commutative. So, even if we change the order of the 2 operands the answer will not change.
So we can randomly choose 2 numbers and calculate their product by interchanging them.
2 × 5 = 10
5 × 2 = 10
