Consequently, what is an example of the commutative property?
For example, if you are adding one and two together, the commutative property of addition says that you will get the same answer whether you are adding 1 + 2 or 2 + 1. The commutative property of addition says that you can also add 2 + 1 + 3 or 3 + 2 + 1 and still get the same answer.
One may also ask, what is associative property and commutative property? In math, the associative and commutative properties are laws applied to addition and multiplication that always exist. The associative property states that you can re-group numbers and you will get the same answer and the commutative property states that you can move numbers around and still arrive at the same answer.
Moreover, which property uses parentheses?
The associative property of multiplication says you can choose which pair of numbers to multiply first, so when every operation is multiplication, you can move parentheses without changing the answer.
Does the associative property have to have parentheses?
Definition: The associative property states that you can add or multiply regardless of how the numbers are grouped. By 'grouped' we mean 'how you use parenthesis'. In other words, if you are adding or multiplying it does not matter where you put the parenthesis. Add some parenthesis any where you like!.
