It works for some operations, for others it doesn't. Specifically, both addition and multiplication of real numbers are commutative.

What is the deffinition of commutative?

Assuming you mean definition, commutative is a property of an operation such that the order of the operands does not affect the result. Thus for addition, A + B = B + A. Multiplication of numbers is also commutative but multiplication of matrices is not. Subtraction and division are not commutative.

Can you give an example that shows that division is not a commutative property?

Commutative property in division Indeed I have the answer. One example would be: 8 divided by 4 = 2 is different from 4 divided by 8 = 0.5 This means that if you alter the order of the dividends, the result of the operation will change. That is why division is not a commutative property. not ha ha ha


What is an commutative property in math?

Commutative Property is when you add or multiply two numbers and then they equal the same two numbers that are in different orders and have the same operation. For example, there could be 9+7=7+9 or 5x8=8x5.

What is the difference between Identity Property Commutative Property Associative Property Distributive Property?

These are properties of algebraic structures with binary operations such as addition and/or subtraction defined on the set.The identity property, refers to a unique element of the set with special properties with respect to an operation.The commutative property states that the order of the operands does not matter. There are many algebraic structures where this property does not hold. The set of numbers with the operation subtraction or division do not have this property.The associative property states that the order in which a repeated operation is carried out does not matter.The distributive property is applicable when there are two binary operations defined on the set.

What does the commutative property mean?

The commutative property states that changing the order of operands in a binary operation does not affect the result. More simply, and using more familiar terms: for addition, it means that A + B = B + A or for multiplication, A * B = B *A Subtraction and division are not commutative, nor is matrix multiplication.

How does the commutative property describe the real numbers?

For the set of real numbers, R, a binary operation is a function from R X R into R, where R X R is the x-y plane. A binary operation is commutative if the value returned by the operation is the same regardless of the order of the operands. For real numbers the two most basic commutative binary operations are addition and multiplication and they can be expressed in the following way:If a and b are any two real numbers then a + b = b + a (addition is commutative) and ab = ba ( multiplication is commutative).


Can you reverse the order of integers when subtracting and still get the same answer why?
