Commutative Property of Addition

Commutative Property of Multiplication

Associate Property of Addition

Associate Property of Multiplication

For all real numbers, a + b = b + a

For all real numbers, a

**b = b**aFor all real numbers, (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)

For all real numbers, (a

**b)**c = a**(b**c)Commutative Property of Addition

For all real numbers, a + b = b + a
