## anonymous one year ago help!! i know i just asked but the p is in the wrong place :'(What is the value of p? 4 × 11 × p = 11 × 4 × 5

Hey there :) Multiplication is commutative: It doesn't matter which order we multiply in. So that means that $$\Large\rm 7\times5\times12$$ is the same as $$\Large\rm 12\times5\times7$$

Do you see something similar happening in your problem? If $$\Large\rm 4\times11\times\color{orangered}{p}$$ is the same as $$\Large\rm 11\times4\times\color{orangered}{5}$$, then what is our p value?
