o is identity element for addition. 2+0=2

2+(-2)=0

-2 is the additive inverse of 2

1 is the identity element for multiplication. 3*1=3

3*(1/3) =1

(1/3) is the multiplicative inverse of 3

2(3+5) =2*3+2*5 =6+10=16

The above is distributive property of multiplication over addition.

2*3 =3*2 =6

The above is commutative property.
