Associative Laws Post by natttt

The "Associative Laws" say that it doesn"t matter how you group the numbers:

1) when you add:

(a + b) + c = a + (b + c)
Example: (6 + 3) + 4 = 6 + (3 + 4)

2) or when you multiply:

(a × b) × c = a × (b × c)
Example: (2 x 4) x 3 = 2 x (4 x 3)

More examples:

(2 + 4) + 5 = 6 + 5 = 11
Has the same answer as this: 2 + (4 + 5) = 2 + 9 = 11

(3 × 4) × 5 = 12 × 5 = 60
Has the same answer as this: 3 × (4 × 5) = 3 × 20 = 60
