hi lanxiyu

Welcome to the forum.

Is this an exercise where we should prove this or are you asking for help with it as a problem you have been set.

Either way I had better start trying to construct a proof. Hopefully, more when (if) I succeed.

LATER EDIT. From your top line I can show at least one product is not commutative.
