    You aren't all you are doing is moving the 4 to another place in the equation by doing this you will not affect the answer at all

    Why do you think C is wrong? Did the computer say it was wrong?

    Its not it is Commutative property of multiplication the Commutative property of multiplication allows you to move a # that is being multiplied and by doing so will not change the answer to the equation
