what is commutative property
The commutative property means that when you chance the order of an operation, it does not change the result.
an example of an operation that is commutative is addition: a+b=b+a (or in terms of actual numbers, 1+2=3=2+1
multiplication is also commutative: a x b=b x a (or in real numbers, 2 x 3=3 x 2=6)
there are also some operations that are not commutative, for example division: (10/2 does not equal 2/10, for example) or subtraction (6-5 does not equal 5-6)
The communitive property is when order doesn't matter, specifically in addition and multiplication.
For example, 4*5=5*4 and 4+5=5+4
This does not work with subtraction or division. Order matters there.
