# Order Property Of Multiplication

In order property of multiplication, the order is not important. That means if we change the place of a number the answer will remain the same.According to the

**1st diagram**, there are four groups each group contains three dots. So it will be

According to the

**2nd diagram**, there are three groups each group contains four dots. So it will be

From the above we can conclude that , if you change the place of a number in multiplication the answer remains the same. That means the order doesn’t matter.

**What is the answer of ?**

**2**

**x 4**

**So easy !**

**2**

**x 4 = 8**

**Now we will see, if the numbers are switched.**

**4**

**x 2 = 8**

**Oh ! its same as above.**

So we conclude that :

So we conclude that :

**2**

**x 4 = 4 x 2**

**Practice**

**Fill in the blanks :**

1) 3 x 4 = ----- x 3

2) 8 x 0 = 0 x ----

3) 12 x ----- = 12 x 11

4) 23 x ------ = 23 x 32

5) ---- x 67 = 67 x 72

6) ---- x 90 = 90 x 12

7) 12 x ---- = 12 x 89

8) 17 x ---- = 17 x 0

9) ---- x 8 = 8 x 7

10) ---- x 19 = 19 x 20

**In which of the following order-property of multiplication is true.**

1) 12 x 13 = 13 x 12

2)18 x 8 = 11 x 16

3) 10 x 0 = 0 x 10

4) 9 x 1 = 1 x 9

5) 8 x 10 = 13 x 8

6) 11 x 2 = 2 x 12

7) 3 x 1 = 1 x 3

8)14 x 6 = 6 x 14

9)10 x 3 = 3 x 10

10) 1 x 2 = 2 x 1
