well it's not Distributive.

3. anonymous

Yeah i think its the last one

4. UsukiDoll

it is the last one because the () are placed differently and we have + signs too.

An operation on 2 numbers a and b is said to be commutative if $a*b=b*a$ where $*=+,-,\times,\div$ Clearly addition and multiplication are commutative operations $a+b=b+a$$a \times b = b \times a$ Associative is when $a*(b*c)=(a*b)*c$ Again, both addition and multiplication are associative
