• wait.. if 42 divided by 7 is 6.. how come 7 divided by 42 is still 6?
• This is similar to the communicative property in subtraction, if you remember. Due to the fact that `7 x 6 = 42 and 6 x 7 = 42`. `42 / 7 = 6, but 42 / 6 = 7`.

However, if you are asking if `42 / 7 = 7 / 42`, then it is not, they are not equal and that is incorrect.

Hope that helps!
