    Same problem, as last guy, Over the last week my panasonic PT-AU100U keeps turning itself off after about 2 minutes of use, I then have to climb up to the unit and flip the on off power switch on the back and then I can use the remote to turn back on. If i do that it stays on. but each time i turn it on I have to go through the same ritual of powering down and back up again. please help...

    This is an Iris issue.

    It started off doing it just once or twice but over time it has been getting worse and at this time It will not stay on for nothing.

    I have the same problem, even after the supposed iris fix. When I got my projector back from the servicing of the iris it has a blue smudge in the right corner, I suspect they got a piece of dust on the lamp when they "fixed" it. Needless to say I know ahead of time I have to let it shutdown once then wait for it to cool off then start it up again when I am going to use it, I have about 600 hours on the projector and have two mac camera warranties, one for the bulb and one for the projector. I have an 80" screen and frankly I am milking this out until it dies, then I will just get a Sammy LCD DLP Front Projector, hopefully by then they will have a 72" inch with LED Lighting for under 2 grand. This was my first and last projector, not worth the hassle and I am not throwing that much bigger of a picture at 80" versus 72"

    If you havent had it serviced for the iris recall, its probably too late but you can call Panasonic and bith them out, they really tried to sweep this under the rug, for an otherwise great projector with tons of lumens and good picture at 720p, they really f"ed up with this iris burning up. I hardly used this thing and it was always on eco mode cinema 2!

Commutative property of multiplication 3*7*2=

If there was a question it is not clear. I will show you what commutativity works. Whether that answers your lack of question remains to be seen.
Commutativity of multiplication (or the commutative property of multiplication) means that the order of the factors in a product does not affect the result. In other word, the order of factors is unimportant.
3*7+2 =7*3+2=23
