PROPERTIES OF MULTIPLICATION

**PROPERTIES
OF MULTIPLICATION :-**

**1. The product
of a number by 1 is the number itself.
**

**Example: 3,78,762 x 1 = 3,78,762**

**2. The
product of a number by zero is always zero.
**

**Example: 34,764 x 0 = 0**

**3. Commutative property
of multiplication:-**

**The product
of two numbers does not change when we change the order of numbers.**

**Example.1) 25 x 20 = 500, and 20 x 25 = 500**

**∴ 25 x 20 = 20 x 25**

**4. Associative
property of multiplication :-**

**The product
of three numbers
does not change when we change their grouping.**

**Example: (35 x 20) x 30 = 700 x 30 = 21,000**

**35 x (
20 x 30 ) = 35 x 600 = 21,000**

**(35 x 30) x
20 = 1050 x 20 = 21,000**
