# What property allows you to change the order of addends?

## What property allows you to change the order of addends?

The commutative property
The commutative property allows us to reorder the addends in an addition problem. The commutative property of addition tells us that we can add numbers in any order and not change the sum.

## Does the commutative property change the order of the group?

The commutative property states that the order in which two numbers are added or multiplied does not change the result.

What does the commutative property allow us to change?

When you rewrite an expression by a commutative property, you change the order of the numbers being added or multiplied. When you are multiplying a number by a sum, you can add and then multiply.

### What happens when you change the order of addends?

If the order of the addends changes, the sum stays the same. If the grouping of addends changes, the sum stays the same. The sum of any number and zero is that number. Multiplying a sum by a number is the same as multiplying each addend by the number and then adding the products.

### What property of addition which changing the order of the addends does not affect the sum?

Commutative property of addition: Changing the order of addends does not change the sum.

What property states that changing the order of two or more terms in addition does not change the sum?

The Commutative Property, in general, states that changing the ORDER of two numbers either being added or multiplied, does NOT change the value of it.

## Did the grouping of the addends or factors affect the result?

Commutative property of addition-changing the order of the addends in an addition problem will not affect the sum. Commutative property of multiplication-changing the order of the factors in a multiplication problem will not affect the product.

## Why might you want to use the commutative property to change the order of the integers in the following sum before adding?

You might want to use the Commutative Property before adding because it makes adding easier.

Why might you want to use the Commutative Property to change the order of the integers in the following sum before adding?

### What is order property of addition?

Order property of addition refers to two sets of addition in which numbers interchange or switch their places the answer remain the same. That means if the numbers are same and if you add any number first answer remains the same. For addition you can change the places of numbers. For example : 5 + 2 is same as 2 + 5.
