# 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

**Explanation:**

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

### Hence, 2 × 5 = 5 × 2 is an example of the commutative property of multiplication.
