True

Work Step by Step

This is an example of the commutative property of multiplication, where the order of the numbers changes, but the product stays the same. For example, if $r=2, s=3, t=4$, then the equation is $(2\times3)\times4=4\times(3\times2)$ is $6\times4=4\times6$. This reduces to $24=24$.
