# COMMUTATIVE PROPERTY OF MULTIPLICATION

## About "Commutative property of multiplication"

Commutative property of multiplication is nothing but the rule which says that, when we are doing multiplication, it doesn't matter, in which order the numbers are.  We can multiply a and b or b and a ... and we'll  get the same answer.

More clearly,  a x b  =  b x a ## Commutative property of multiplication - Examples

4 x 9  =  9 x 4  =  36

17 x 3  =  3 x 17  =  51

24 x 9  =  9 x 24  =  216

18 x 4  =  4 x 18  =  72

15 x 19  =  19 x 15  =  285

27 x 13  =  13 x 27  =  351

14 x 19  =  19 x 14  =  266

27 x 3  =  3 x 27  =  81

34 x 29  =  29 x 34  =  986

17 x 13  =  13 x 17  =  221
