The commutative property of multiplication simply means that changing the order of factors in multiplication does not change the answer.

a + b = b + a

a * b = b * a

The commutative law states that for any numbers a and b it is known that a plus b is equal to b plus a.

Similarly the for any numbers a and b it is known that a times b is equal to b times a.

The commutative law is donated by the equation a + b = b + a or a * b = b * a.

This means that the order in which you add two numbers does not change the end result     e.g. 5 + 2 = 5 + 2

7 = 7
