Properties of multiplication of numbers (integers)
1) The product of two integers is always an integer.( closure property).
2) For any integers a and b, we have ( a x b = b x a)
[ Commutative property].
3) The multiplication of integers is associative.
[ a x ( b x c ) = ( a x b ) x c].
4) The multiplication of integers is distributive over addition.
[ a x( b + c) = a x b + a x c]
