multiplication: the opposite (division) property is factoring

5 x 4 equals 4 x 5 is commutative property.

(8 x 5) x 2 = 8 x (5 x 2)

3 x 5 = 5 x 3 = 15

No, the inverse property of multiplication results in an answer of 1 when inverses are multiplied together. The reciprocal of a number represents the inverse of a number. When a number or term is multiplied by its reciprocal, the result is one. 4 x 1/4 = 1 a x 1/a = 1 5 and 1/5 illustrates the inverse property of multiplication.

(8 x 5) x 2 = 8 x (5 x 2)

The rule says that you can change the order of multiplication: a x b = b x a. For example, 3 x 5 is the same as 5 x 3.

This is the distributive property of multiplication over addition.

The properties of multiplication are:Zero Property: 7 x 0 =0Identity Property: 7 x 1 = 7Commutative Property: 2 x 7 = 7 x 2Associative Property: 3 x (4 x 5) = (3 x 4) x 5Distributive property (over addition) a x (b+c) = (a x b) + (a x c)

The distributive property is not used for simplified multiplication. See http://www.algebrahelp.com/lessons/simplifying/distribution for information about how to use the distributive property to simplify other equations. 20 x 12 is already simplified, so the proper way to solve it is 12 x20 ----- 240 You could potentially factor and use the commutative property to find a simpler equation, ex. 20x12 -- break 20 into 10 and 2 10x2x12 -- multiply 2 by 12 10x24 -- multiply by 10 240

3 x 5 = 5 x 3 = 15

This is an example of the commutative property of multiplication

When a number or term is multiplied by its reciprocal, the result is one. 4 x 1/4 = 1 a x 1/a = 1 5 and 1/5 illustrates the inverse property of multiplication.

The identity property of multiplication, also called the multiplication property of one says that a number does not change when that number is multiplied by 1.Examples3 × 1 = 310 × 1 = 106 × 1 = 668 × 1 = 681 × 4 = 41 × -9 = - 9x × 1 = x(a + b) × 1 = a + b

this is the identity property of addition. 5 + 0 = 5 the 5 gets his idenity back the identity property of multiplication is 1 becuase 1 x 5 = 5
