Commutative Property of Addition
The Commutative Property of Addition states that the numbers that substitute a and b can be flipped/ switched and will always have the same sum. (a+b=b+a)
Commutative Property of Addition
2+3=3+2
Commutative Property of Addition
8+10=10+8
Commutative Property of Multiplication
2 numbers may be put in any order when multiplied.
Commutative Property of Multiplication
If Jane has 2 piles of rocks with 3 in each pile, the number of rocks in total, 6 is equivalent to George who has 3 piles of rocks with 2 rocks in each pile.
Commutative Property of Multiplication
Formula: a
b = b
a or 4
5 = 5
4
Associative property of addition
Associative property states that you can add, regardless of how the numbers are grouped.
Associative property of addition
Parentheses are a big part in associative property.
Associative property of addition
It doesn't matter where you put the parentheses, so add them anywhere you please.
Associative property of multiplication
The associative property of multiplication is a mathematical property that states that you can multiply numbers in an equation regardless of groupings and still get the same answer.
Associative property of multiplication
(5x3)x8=5x(3x8)
120=120
Associative property of multiplication
(axb)xc=ax(bxc)
Additive identity Property
The Additive Identity Property is when you add zero to any real number, and you get the real number as the sum. The number "zero" is known as the "identity number/or additive identity".
Additive identity Property
A + 0 = A
0 + A = A
Additive identity Property
5+0=5
Additive Inverse Property
The "Additive Inverse Property" is a property found in addition problems. The additive inverse of a number A is the number that, when added to A, yields zero.
Additive Inverse Property
Formula: A + (-A) = 0.
Additive Inverse Property
"Inverse" means "opposite". This means we are using the opposite of the Addend. The additive is the negation of the addend.
Multiplicative Identity Property
The multiplicative identity property is when you multiply a number by one, the product will be the original number.
Multiplicative Identity Property
n x 1=n
Multiplicative Identity Property
501 x 1=501
Multiplicative Inverse Property
In mathematics, a multiplicative inverse or reciprocal for a number x, shown by 1/x or x−1, is a number which when multiplied by x yields the multiplicative identity, 1. The multiplicative inverse of a fraction a/b is b/a. For the multiplicative inverse of a real number, divide 1 by the number.
Multiplicative Inverse Property
Another name for Reciprocal.
What you multiply by a number to get 1
In other words, when you multiply a number by its "Multiplicative Inverse" you get 1.
Multiplicative Inverse Property
Example:
3z x 1/3z= 1
