 Homework Statement:

Evaluate the commutator [π₯(π/ππ¦), π¦(π/ππ₯)] by applying the operators to an arbitrary
function π(π₯,π¦).
 Relevant Equations:
 [A , B] = AB  BA
Hello,
In QM class this morning my Prof claimed that the commutator [π₯(π/ππ¦), π¦(π/ππ₯)] = 0.
However, my classmate and I arrived at x(d/dx)  y(d/dy).
Can someone explain how (or if) our professor is correct?
