    in an equation when it has 4(5x+3) you hav to multiply the two numbers including the x

    sooo........ 4*5x=(20x and 4*3=12 so the answer is 20x+12

    the commutative property of addition is very simple <----- dont write tht down tho :) ok First of all think of any two numbers ok ..................... now add them together once you got your answer add them again but this time switch the numbers this basically is the commutative property which is any number added to another number equals the same number and order doesnt count that was hard with no numbers lol
