The commutative property for any two numbers, X and Y, is

X # Y = Y # X

where # can stand for addition or multiplication.

Whether the numbers are written as integers, rational fractions, irrationals or decimal numbers is totally irrelevant.

What is commutative property of addition using decimal numbers?

The commutative property of addition applies to all real and complex numbers. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the form in which the number is represented: decimal, binary, etc.

What is the definition of the commutative property of addition using decimal numbers?

The commutative property of addition says that it does not matter in which order you add the numbers, you will get the same result. For example, 5 + 3 = 8 and 3 + 5 = 8.

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 do write a definition and give an example of the commutative property of addition using decimal numbers?

The commutative property states that given any two numbers, x and y,x + y = y + xThe property applies to all real numbers and complex numbers as well.2.3 + 4.5 = 6.8 = 4.5 + 2.3

How does knowing the commutative property cut the number of facts to be learned in half?

The above is only partially true since not all mathematical operations are commutative. For example, subtraction is not commutative (though addition using negative numbers is). Where an operaton is commutative it does halve the number of facts to be learned. For example, when you have learned 2+3 = 5, you do not need to learn 3+2.

Commutative property of multiplication using the numbers 7 and 15?

7 x 15 = 15 x 7 Basically, commutative property of multiplication states that the order in which they are multiplied does not matter.

Multiply by using distributive property n 4n 9?

You need the associative and commutative properties, but not the distributive property. n*4n*9 =n*(4n*9) (associative) = n*(9*4n) (commutative) = n*(36n) (associative) = 36n*n commutative = 36*n^2

You can change the order of the factors of multiplication problem without affecting the product by using?

For two factors, this is the commutative property. For more than two problems, if you change the factors using any arbitrary order, this usually implicitly involves using both the commutative and the associative properties.

What do you multiply by using the property of multiplication to get the correct result?

A property of multiplication, like addition, is that it can be put on any side of another expression, as long as it is all multiplication. For example, the commutative propety, 3x6, is the same thing as 6x3, they both equal 18. This is unique to addition and multipication, because 3-6, is not the same as 6-3, 10/5 is not the same as 5/10

How do you work out 4a plus 2b-1a plus 9b?

4a+2b-1a+9b combine all alike variables using commutative property of addition 4a-1a+2b+9b Then add the like variables 3a+11b

What is the addition property for 6 77 6?

Unfortunately, limitations of the browser used by Answers.com means that we cannot see most symbols. It is therefore impossible to give a proper answer to your question. If, the question relates to 6 + 7 = 7 + 6 it is the Abelian or commutative property of addition. If the question is about something else please resubmit your question spelling out the symbols as "plus", "minus", "equals" etc. And using ^ to indicate powers (eg x-squared = x^2).

Which law of mathematics is illustrated by 6 plus 3 plus 2 equals 6 plus 2 plus 3?

The equality 6+3+2 = 6+2+3 is an example of the commutative property of addition. When using only addition, the order of the values does not change their sum. Since b+c = c+b then a+(b+c) = a+(c+b)

What property is RS plus RS equals 2RS?

The distributive property of multiplication over addition and the identity property of multiplication. RS + RS = 1*RS + 1*RS (using identity property) = (1 + 1)*RS (using distributive property) = 2*RS

What does commutative property of multiplication mean?

it means like using the same numbers agsin for example 5 times 3 = 3 times 5 it is just like fact family

What operation computer can perform addition or subtractio?

Computer can perform Both of them in binary level (0,1)multiplication and Division is done by using subtraction and addition property

Why is there no such thing as a remainder when dividing decimals?

because you can always add a 0 when using decimals

How do you write an equivalent expression using the communative property with 11 plus ab?

Using the communative property of both addition and multiplication, 11+ab could be rewritten as ab+11, 11+ba or ba+11.

how Do you determine the least to greatest when using fractions and decimals?

You determine the least to greatest in decimals by using their leftmost unit. The decimal 0.2 is less than 0.3. To determine fractions, you need to first convert them to decimals.
