# What property is 7x1 equals 7 or 1x7 equals 7? Wiki User

Commutative Property of Multiplication.

The Commutative Property of Multiplication says that the order that you multiply two numbers does not matter, you'll get the same answer either way (e.g., 7x1 = 7 and 1 x 7 = 7).

The Commutative Property of Addition says that the order that you add two numbers does not matter, you'll get the same answer either way (e.g., 7 + 1 = 8 and 1 + 7 = 8).

There is NOT a Commutative Property for subtraction, since the order that you subtract two numbers makes a difference (e.g., 7 - 3 = 4, but 3 - 7 = -4...they are not the same!).

Likewise, there is NOT a Commutative Property for division, since the order that you divide two numbers makes a difference (e.g., 12/3 = 4, but 3/12 = 0.25...they are not the same!). Wiki User
