What
Commutative
Property​

is
a+b=b+a
Multiplication:
a(b) = b(a)
What

Associative
Property​

:
a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c
Multiplication:
a(b∙c) = (a∙b)c
a+0=a
a∙1=a
The ​
commutative
property ​
states that
the order in which
or multiplied does
not change the sum
or product.
The
associative
​
property ​
states that
the way in which
numbers
are
grouped when they
are
or
multiplied does not
change the sum or
product.
any number, the
sum is the number.
When the number
is multiplied by 1,
the product is the
number.
Multiplicative
Property of Zero​
:
Example 1a:

a∙0=0
When any number
is multiplied by 0,
the product is 0.

example that shows
that a conjecture is
false, the property
does not apply.

The difference of two
different whole numbers
is always less than both
of the two numbers.
