    Q: What is Commutative, Associative and Distributive laws in maths?

    Commutative laws say we can swap numbers, and you still get the same number when you add, for example, a+b = b+a and same for multiplication. Associative laws say it does not matter how we group the number final value will remain the same, for example, (a+b)+c = (a+b)+c , and same for multiplication Distributive laws say that we can have the same answer while multiplying a number by a group of numbers added together or multiplying them separately and then add them, For example, a x ( b+c) = axb + axc
