can someone explain this to me. Given the equation 7x + 2 = 2 + 5x – 6, use the commutative property to rearrange the terms so that like terms are next to one another. This gives the equation 7x + 2 = 2 – 6 + 5x. Then use the ____________________ to group the like terms. This gives the equation 7x + 2 = (2 – 6) + 5x. Next, combine like terms to get the equation 7x + 2 = –4 + 5x. Use Use the subtraction property of equality to subtract 5x from both sides of the equation. i think its the associative property of addition am i correct?

Commuutative property:In mathematics an operation is commutative if changing the order of the operation does not change the end result.

well if the question is asking what property it is then yes you can write it like this if your teacher is strict 7x + 2 = 2 – 6 + 5x=commutative property
