Yes. The commutative property of addition (as well as the commutative property of multiplication) applies to all real numbers, and even to complex numbers. As an example (for integers):

5 + (-3) = (-3) + 5

Explain if the commutative property of addition applies when you add two negative integers?

The commutative property holds for all numbers under addition, regardless of whether they are positive or negative - the sign of the number stays with the number, for example: -2 + 5 = (-2) + 5 = 5 + (-2) = 5 + -2 -2 + -5 = (-2) + (-5) = (-5) + (-2) = -5 + -2 Subtraction is not commutative, but when subtraction is taken as adding the negative of the second number, the commutative property of addition holds, for example: 5 - 2 ≠ 2 - 5 but: 5 - 2 = 5 + -2 = 5 + (-2) = (-2) + 5 = -2 + 5

What are properties of addition?

There are two properties of addition. The COMMUTATIVE property states that the order in which the addition is carried out does not matter. In symbolic terms, a + b = b + a The ASSOCIATIVE property states that the order in which the operation is carried out does not matter. Symbolically, (a + b) + c = a + (b + c) and so, without ambiguity, either can be written as a + b + c. That is IT. No more! The DISTRIBUTIVE property is a property of multiplication over addition (OR subtraction), not a property of addition. The existence of of an IDENTITY and an ADDITIVE INVERSE are properties of the set over which addition is defined; again not a property of addition. For example, you can define addition on all positive integers which will have the commutative and associative properties but the identity (zero) and additive inverses (negative numbers) are undefined as far as the set is concerned.
