"Commutative rule" (as you call it) cannot be "broken," since it is a property that some operations have and some don't. Nothing here is "broken." Multiplication of quaternions is just not commutative (or, in other words, does not satisfy the commutative property).

Product of two cyclic groups is cyclic iff their orders are co-'
Say you have two groups G=g with order n and H=h with order m. Then the product G×H is a cyclic group if and only if gcd(n,m)=1

As you can see the solution to the system is the coordinates of the point where the two lines intersect. So, when solving linear systems with two variables we are really asking where the two lineas will intersect.
