To determine

To rewrite: the given expression by using Commutative Property of addition.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 15E

Using Commutative property over addition of real numbers the expression can be written as 3+x .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An expression is given as

  x+3

Calculation:

Commutative property over addition of real numbers:

If two real numbers are added then the result does not depend on the order of addition.

Suppose a and b are two real numbers, commutative property says that

  a+b=b+a

Therefore, x+3 , can be written by using Commutative property over addition of real numbers, as 3+x .

  x+3=3+x
