Commutative Property of Addition

a + b = b + a; two numbers can be added in either order without changing the sum.

Commutative Property of Multiplication

a X b = b X a; two numbers can be multiplied in either order without changing the product.


Two or more numbers in a product. 2 X 3 = 6, the factors are 2 and 3.

factor pairs

Two factors of a number. 18 has three factor pairs: 1 and 18; 2 and 9; 3 and 6


The answer in a multiplication problem. 2 X 3 = 6, the product is 6.


The answer in a division problem. 35/ 7 = 5, the quotient is 5.


The number that divides another number in a division problem. 35/ 7 = 5; the divisor is 7.


The number in a division problem that is being divided. 35/ 7 = 5; the dividend is 35.

A number (integer- ex: 2, -2) that is divisible by two.

odd number

A number (integer- ex: 3, -3) that is not divisible by two.

prime number

If the larger of 2 counting numbers, divided by the smaller with no reminder, the larger is divisible by the smaller.

divisibility rule

A shortcut for determining whether a counting number is divisible by another counting number without actually doing the division.

turn-around rule for multiplication

A rule for solving addition and multiplication problems based on the Commutative Properties of Multiplication and Addition. For example: if you now that 6 8= 48, then by the turn-around rule you also know that 8 6 = 48.


An amount left over when one number is divided by another number

square number

The product of two factors that are the same.
