Q7 Match the following:






Understand the above properties, carefully note the difference between commutativity and associativity.
Solution:

We see that the number 136 is rewritten as

It is a distributive property of multiplication over addition (c)


We see that the numbers are rearranged under the multiplication operation.

It is a commutativity under multiplication (associativity on the other hand would be



The numbers are rearranged under the addition operation.

It is a commutative under addition (associativity on the other hand would be
