#### Answer

Example answer: (125 $\div$ 5)$\div$5=5 If you use the commutative property change the order, you will end up with a completely different answer. 125$\div$(5$\div$5) 125$\div$(1) 125

#### Work Step by Step

Division isn't commutative because it must be done in the order that it was originally intended. If the order is changed, the answer is changed.
