Because of the commutative property of addition.
2 plus 8 equals 8 plus 2 demonstrates the commutative property of addition
the commutative property of addition
Commutative property of addition.
The Commutative Property of Addition. It also works for multiplication: 3 times 2 is equal to 2 times 3.
The commutative property
The commutative property of addition. The commutative property of addition states, "x + y = y + x"
This is the commutative property of addition.
The answer is the commutative property of addition.
This is an example of the "commutative" property.
commutative of addition.
Commutative Property of Multiplication.
Its commutative property of addition
The commutative property of addition. a + b = b + a
Addition is commutative.

Commutative property of addition. :)
If you just switch the numbers around (in either multiplication or addition) it is the commutative property.
The Commutative Property
No. It is the identity property of addition. The commutative property of addition states that numbers can be added in any order to get the same result. For example, 3 + 2 = 2 + 3.
No, division is not commutative, because a/b does not necessarily equal b/a. A simple proof by counter-example: Assuming a = 10 and b = 5, we test the property of commutativity with: 10/5 = 2 5/10 = 0.5. This is an example of division failing to be commutative. In general, for a/b to equal b/a, a must equal b. For all other pairs (a,b) the property fails.
There is no commutative property of division. Commutative means to exchange places of numbers. If you exchange the place of numbers in a division problem, you would affect the answer. So, commutative property applies only to addition or multiplication.Not really; for example, 2/1 = 2, and 1/2 = 0.5. However, you can convert any division into a multiplication, and apply the commutative property of multiplication. For example, 6 / 3 = 6 x (1/2), which is the same as (1/2) x 6.
