 Description  
 Commutative Properties:  Properties that denote an operation is independent of the order of combination.

For example:

The commutative property of addition states: a + b = b + a.

An example is 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, because both sides of the equation equal 7.


The commutative property of multiplication states: ab = ba.

An example is 5 x 2 = 2 x 5, because both sides of the equation equal 10.
