# Associative Property Formula

The associative property is a core concept in mathematics that shows a property of some binary operations. In propositional logic, associativity is a valid rule of replacement for expressions in logical proofs. According to associative property, you can add or multiply regardless of how the numbers are grouped. Associative property in simple terms refers to the grouping of numbers. It is mainly used to regroup things and any time type of computation depends on things being regrouped.

a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c

Associative Property of Multiplication Formula

(aÂ Ã—Â b)Â Ã—Â c = aÂ Ã—Â (bÂ Ã—Â c)

## Associative Property Examples

Q.1. Solve 12 + (15 + 7) using Associative Property of Addition.

Solution:

12 + (15 + 7)
= (12 + 15) + 7
= 27 + 7
= 34

Q.2. Solve 3Â Ã—Â (2Â Ã—Â 6) using Associative Property of Multiplication.

Solution:
3Â Ã—Â (2Â Ã—Â 6)
= (3Â Ã—Â 2) 6
= 6Â Ã—Â 6
= 36
