what is the difference between associative and commutative property.

**here is the answer **

**associative property states that if there are three whole number a,b and c.then a+(b+c)=(a+b)+c and a*(b*c)=(a*b)*c **

**commutative property states that if there are two whole number a and b the a+b=b+a and a*b=b*a.**

**examples proof of associative law and commutative law.**

**1.2+(3+5)=2+8=10**

**and (2+3)+5=5+5=10 it is also called associative law of addition**

**2.2*(3*5)=2*15=30**

**and (2*3)*5=6*5=30 it is also called associative law of multiplication**

**3.2+3=5**

**and 3+2=5 it is also called commutative law of addition**

**4.2*3=6**

**and 3*2=6 it is also called commutative law of multiplication**

**hope this helps you**

**thumbs up please **
