Commutative Property
Addition and Multiplication are commutative .
This means that the order doesn't  change the sum or
product.

Example for addition : 3 +2 = 2 + 3
Example for multiplication :2 x 3 = 3 x 2
Associative Property
addition and multiplication are associative. This
means that the grouping addends or factors will not
change the sum or the product
example for addition: (3 + 4 ) +6 = 3 + (4 + 6 )
example for multiplication :  (3 x 4 ) x 6 = 4 ( 6 x 3 )
