Commutative Property (Addition of Whole Numbers) : Solved Examples

Addition of Integers Addition of Whole Numbers Division of integers Division of Whole Numbers Multiplication of Integers
Multiplication of Whole Numbers Subtraction of Integers Subtraction of Whole Numbers



Study the following two number lines and write your observation.


In number line 1:




We start from number 4, move six places to the right and reach at Point 10.

So, number line 1 can be represented as the following equation:

Equation 1 : 4 + 6 = 10



In number line 2:



We start from number 6, move four places to the right and reach at Point 10.

So, number line 2 can be represented as the following equation:

Equation 2 : 6 + 4 = 10

Now, from equation 1 and equation 2, you can notice that the result is same i.e. 10. The only difference is that the order of whole numbers 6 & 4 are changed.

This is known as Commutative Property for addition of whole numbers, which says that even if we change the order of numbers in addition expression, the result remains same.
