• Definition of Commutative Property Commutative property is one of the basic properties of numbers. The word “commute” means “exchange” or “swap over”. Commutative property states that numbers can be added or multiplied in any order. That is: Commutative Property of Addition states that changing the order of addends does not change the sum. That is, a + b = b + a . Commutative Property of Multiplication states that changing the order of factors does not change the product. That is, a × b = b × a . Examples of Commutative Property 2 + 3 = 3 + 2. Whether you add 3 to 2 or 2 to 3, you get 5 both ways. 4 × 7 = 7 × 4. Whether you multiply 4 by 7 or 7 by 4, the product is the same, i.e. 28. Commutative Property in real-life Counting a combination of different coins reminds you of commutative property. Suppose you have 20 quarters and 10 dimes. It doesn’t matter whether you add the quarters first and then the dimes OR add the dimes first and then the quarters OR add a quarter and a dime alternately, finally the total is going to be \$6 CESL Workshop, 2/5/10, Presented by Amy Schlessman, R.O.S.E. ®
