Multiplication and Division

The *commutative property* of multiplication says that the order of numbers doesn't matter in multiplication. For example, $4\times6=6\times4$4×6=6×4.

Use the commutative property to complete the following statements:

a

If $2\times4=8$2×4=8, then $4\times2=\editable{}$4×2=.

b

If $2\times5=10$2×5=10, then $5\times2=\editable{}$5×2=.

c

If $2\times\editable{}=12$2×=12, then $\editable{}\times2=12$×2=12.
