Explanation :
Division is not commutative for Whole Numbers, this means that if we change the order of numbers in the division expression, the result also changes.
Commutative Property for Division of Whole Numbers can be further understood with the help of following examples :
Example 1= Explain Commutative Property for Division of Whole Numbers, with given whole numbers 8 & 4 ?
Answer = Given Whole numbers = 8, 4 and their two orders are as follows :
Order 1 = 8 ÷ 4 = 2
Order 2 = 4 ÷ 8 = 1/2
As, in both the orders the result of division expression is not same,
So, we can say that Division is not Commutative for Whole numbers.
Example 2= Explain Commutative Property for Division of Whole Numbers, with given whole numbers 27 & 9 ?
Answer = Given Whole numbers = 27, 9 and their two orders are as follows :
Order 1 = 27 ÷ 9 = 3
Order 2 = 9 ÷ 27 = 1/3
As, in both the orders the result of division expression is not same,
So, we can say that Division is not Commutative for Whole numbers.
Example 3= Explain Commutative Property for Division of Whole Numbers, with given whole numbers 18 & 24 ?
Answer = Given Whole numbers = 8, 4 and their two orders are as follows :
Order 1 = 18 ÷ 24 = 3/4
Order 2 = 24 ÷ 18 = 4/3
As, in both the orders the result of division expression is not same,
So, we can say that Division is not Commutative for Whole numbers.
