Commutative property: When two numbers are multiplied together, the product is the same regardless of the order of the multiplicands. For example: A × B = B × A Associative Property: When three or more numbers are multiplied, the product is the same regardless of the grouping of the factors. For example: (A × B) × C = A × (B × C). Multiplicative Identity Property: The product of any number and one is that number itself. For example: A × 1 = A Distributive property: The sum of two number times a third number, is equal to the sum of each addend times the third number. For example: A × (B + C) = (A × B) + (A × C)
