# What is the properties of addition?

**commutative**,

**associative**, additive

**identity**and distributive properties. Additive

**Identity Property**: The sum of any number and zero is the original number.

In respect to this, what are the three properties of addition?

**The properties are the commutative, associative, identity and distributive properties.**

- Commutative Property: When two numbers are added, the sum is the same regardless of the order of the addends.
- Associative Property: When three or more numbers are added, the sum is the same regardless of the grouping of the addends.

**Commutative Property**,

**Associative Property**,

**Distributive**Property,

**Identity Property**of Multiplication, And

**Identity Property**of Addition.

Then, what is the commutative property of addition?

The word "**commutative**" comes from "commute" or "move around", so the **Commutative Property** is the one that refers to moving stuff around. For **addition**, the rule is "a + b = b + a"; in numbers, this means 2 + 3 = 3 + 2. For multiplication, the rule is "ab = ba"; in numbers, this means 2×3 = 3×2.

There are four mathematical properties which involve addition. The properties are the **commutative**, **associative**, **identity** and distributive properties. **Commutative Property**: When two numbers are added, the sum is the same regardless of the order of the addends.
