Commutative, not communtative The mathematical property of being able to change the order of the numbers and not change the answer. A plus B equals B plus A (1 plus 3 equals 4, 3 plus 1 equals 4) A times B equals B times A (2 times 5 equals 10, 5 times 2 equals 10) Addition and multiplication are commutative operators A minus B is not necessarily equal to B minus A (6 minus 4 equals 2, 4 minus 6 equals minus 2) A divided B is not necessarily equal to B divided A (9 divided by 3 equals 3, 3 divided by 9 equals one-third) Subtraction and division are not commutative operators

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.

1 + 2 = 2 + 1

In the case of addition: Commutative property: a + b = b + a Associative property: (a + b) + c = a + (b + c) Note that (1) the commutative property involves two numbers; the associative property involves three; and (2) the commutative property changes the order of the operands; the associative property doesn't. Repeatedly applying the two properties allow you to rearrange an addition that involves several numbers in any order.

This would be the commutative property of addition. It states that we can add the same numbers in any order and arrive at the same answer. I always tell my students the "C" in commutative stands for change as in changing the order of the numbers...
