 Question 104727: two grocers open a case of peaches. One grocer sees the case of containing 4 rows of 6 cans for a total of 24 cans, the other grocer sees the case the case as 6 rows of 4 cans for the total of 24 . Which eaquation illistrates the property at work? a. a+b=b+a b.ab=ba c.a(b+c)=ab+ac d(ab)c=a(bc) Its a work sheet!Answer by BurningFlame_marc(77)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hello! That would be b, because to get the total number of cans you should multiply the rows and the number of cans in one row. If that's the case, you can say that what the first grocer saw was 4*6 and the second grocer saw 6*4. That would mean that 4*6=6*4. And if that was represented by the variables a and b, It will mean that a*b=b*a or ab=ba, which is letter b. Is that clear? Thank You!
