"commutative law in mathematics, law holding that for a given binary operation (combining two quantities) the order of the quantities is arbitrary; e.g., in addition, the numbers 2 and 5 can be combined as 2+5=7 or as 5+2=7. More generally, in addition, for any two numbers a and b the commutative law is expressed as a + b = b + a. Multiplication of numbers is also commutative, i.e., a × b = b × a. In general, any binary operation, symbolized by [symbol], joining mathematical entities A and B obeys the commutative law if A [symbol] B = B [symbol]... "

"The "Commutative Laws" just mean that you can swap numbers around and still get the same answer when you add. Or when you multiply.
Examples:
You can swap when you add: 3 + 6 = 6 + 3
You can swap when you multiply: 2 × 4 = 4 × 2"

agree  jccantrell: So, just leave it off. We only have the one name for it here. --XX-- Commutative is how I learned it in school. Commutation is what electric motors do.

-> Thanks Jccantrell... ;-)

agree  Cilian O'Tuama: -ive / and as jc says, we only have one name (that I'm aware)

-> Thanks Cilian.... Commutative law... As in the links.

Kommutativgesetz (Vertauschungsgesetz)
commutativity ("interchanging/commutative law")

Explanation:
"Vertauschungsgesetz" is an explanation, the German translation vs. the (incomprehensible) Latin "commutare= to interchange, to commute"; but the right one is "Kommutativgesetz" (in English "Commutativity").
I think you can leave it off, or give an English translation.

"to interchange (math.) vertauschen"

neutral  Cristina intern: "Commutative law" is in my answer. Note added at 38 mins (2008-07-10 21:03:06 GMT). Commutative Law = Property, associated with binary operations and functions. Commutativity = the ability (Vikipedia). This is a (learning) software.
