Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Notice that inside the parentheses, the 9 * (4) remained the same. Think of 9 * (4) as y. What property does y * 7 = 7 * y show?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Commutative multiplication?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2All that changed was the order of the multiplication. Commutative: you can change order Associative: you can change grouping Identity: a * 1 = a (it's a property of 1 in multiplication). Inverse: a * 1/a = 1 (reciprocals) Distributive: a(b + c) = ab + ac

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Correct. To me it looks like the commutative property of multiplication.
