# what is the difference between associative and commutative property.

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
