Commutative Property of Multiplication: *The factors can be multiplied in any order. 8 X 4 = 4 X 8 Associative Property of Multiplication: *When we change the groupings of factors, the product does not change: (3 x 2) x 4 = 24 or 3 x (2 x 4) = 24. Distributive Property of Multiplication: *The Distributive Property lets you multiply a sum by multiplying each addend separately and then add the products. 2 X 12 (2 X 10) + (2 X 2) = 20 + 4 = 24 *
