__Explanation :-__
**Multiplication is Commutative for Integers,** this means that even if we change the order of integers in multiplication expression, the result remains same. **This property is also known as Commutativity for Multiplication of Integers**
**Commutative Property for Multiplication of Integers** can be further understood with the help of following examples :-
**Example 1=** Explain Commutative Property for multiplication of integers (-5) & (-7) ?
**Answer =** Given Integers = (-5), (-7) and their two orders are as follows :-
**Order 1 =** (-5) × (-7) = 35
**Order 2 =** (-7) × (-5) = 35
As in both the orders the result is same i.e 35
**So, we can say that Multiplication is Commutative for Integers.**
**Example 2=** Explain Commutative Property for multiplication of integers (-20) & (-8) ?
**Answer =** Given Integers = (-20), (-8) and their two orders are as follows :-
**Order 1 =** (-20) × (-8) = 160
**Order 2 =** (-8) × (-20) = 160
As in both the orders the result is same i.e 160
**So, we can say that Multiplication is Commutative for Integers.**
**Example 3=** Explain Commutative Property for multiplication of integers (-10) & (-20) ?
**Answer =** Given Integers = (-10), (-20) and their two orders are as follows :-
**Order 1 =** (-10) × (-20) = 200
**Order 2 =** (-20) × (-10) = 200
As in both the orders the result is same i.e 200
**So, we can say that Multiplication is Commutative for Integers.**
