Pre-Algebra : Associative Property of Addition

Example Questions

Example Question #11 : Identities And Properties

Which property is illustrated by the example?

Associative property of addition

Zero property

Commutative property of addition

Inverse property of addition

Associative property of addition

Explanation:

The associative property of addition states:

When considering only addition and subtraction, the order of operations does not matter.

Example Question #2 : Associative Property Of Addition

Simplify.

Explanation:

Working left to right use the distributive property by multiplying the 4 to each term in parentheses.

Now, use the associative property to group like terms. Note that cannot be combined because they are not like terms.

Like terms can be combined with addition or subtraction.

Example Question #11 : Identities And Properties

What property is being demonstrated?

Communitive Property of Addition

PEMDAS

Distribution Property

Associative Property of Addition

Associative Property of Addition

Explanation:

The Associative Property of Addition says that when we add more than two numbers the grouping of the addends does not change the sum.

Example Question #1 : Associative Property Of Addition

Which of the following statements demonstrates the associative property of addition?

None of the examples in the other responses demonstrates the associative property of addition.

Explanation:

The associative property of addition states that to add three numbers, any two can be added first, followed by adding the sum to the third. Of the statements given, only

demonstrates this property, so it is the correct choice.

Example Question #7 : Associative Property Of Addition

Which of the following displays the associative property of addition?

$2(a&space;+&space;b)&space;=&space;2a&space;+2b$
The associative property of addition states that you can group, or "associate," additive terms in any order and still get the same answer.  Here  does just that: whether you add $a+b$ first and then add $c$, or add $b+c$ first and then $a$, as long as you add those three terms you'll get the same answer.
