Is “2 x 5” the same as “5 x 2”?
This seems like a very straight forward question, but think carefully before you give your answer.
While the final number 10 is the same, both equations are different.
Therefore, it is incorrect to say that they are the same.
We cannot say that “2 x 5” = 10 is the same as “5 x 2” = 10 as they represent different things.
