Do you know the definition of commutative?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It means that when performing an operator of some sort, the order in which you do it in does not matter.

But if the order does not matter then all of them are a possible answer?

Oh I see. So it would be the last answer, right?

2 + (3 + 4) = (2 + 3) + 4 We got 3+4 and then add 2. Or we got 2+3 and add 4. We are essentially taking the same sum but in a different order. 2 + (3 + 4) = (2 + 3) + (2 + 4) We got 3+4 and then add 2. However, we do not perform the same order that we performed on the first case. 2 + (3 + 4) = 2 + (4 + 3) Same as the first.

1st and last actually because the first 1 uses the same idea.
anonymous

But I can only choose one answer. So The first one would be the one I should lean more towards?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Last one is more "better" actually.

Wait!!!

Nvm, the first one... The order changes.

I am a bit slow today.
anonymous

Because you perform the same thing in a different order but the both produce the same result.

Thats what I was thinking when you said the parenthesis matter. Thank you so much @Dido525 .

For the 3rd one, 3+4 and 43 is the same thing but it's not performed in a different order.
