The commutative property of addition states that changing the order of the addends does not affect the sum (e.g., 24 + 136 = 136 + 24). Similarly, the commutative property of multiplication states that changing the order of the factors does not affect the product (e.g., 12 × 43 = 43 × 12).

The identity property of addition states that if zero is added to a given number, the sum is the same as the given number. The identity property of multiplication states that if a given number is multiplied by one, the product is the same as the given number.

The identity property of addition states that if zero is added to a given number, the sum is the same as the given number. The identity property of multiplication states that if a given number is multiplied by one, the product is the same as the given number.

The commutative property of addition states that changing the order of the addends does not affect the sum (e.g., 4 + 3 = 3 + 4). Similarly, the commutative property of multiplication states that changing the order of the factors does not affect the product (e.g., 2 × 3 = 3 × 2).

The distributive property states that multiplying a sum by a number gives the same result as multiplying each addend by the number and then adding the products.
