# Verify the Property: X × Y = Y × X by Taking: X = 2 , Y = 7 − 8 - Mathematics

Sum

Verify the property: x × y = y × x by taking:

$x = 2, y = \frac{7}{- 8}$

#### Solution

$\text{We have to verify that} x \times y = y \times x .$
$x = 2, y = \frac{7}{- 8}$
$x \times y = 2 \times \frac{7}{- 8} = \frac{7}{- 4}$
$y \times x = \frac{7}{- 8} \times 2 = \frac{7}{- 4}$
$\therefore 2 \times \frac{7}{- 8} = \frac{7}{- 8} \times 2$
$\text{Hence verified .}$
