Question

Name the property involved in the following example. 2(3/5+1/2)=2(3/5)+2(1/2)

Solution

Associative Properties Addition and multiplication are often referred to as binary operations. We can operate on only two numbers at a time. For example, (2+ 3, 9 x 8). If a computation involves three addends, we first add two of the numbers and then add the third to the previous sum. For example, (2+3) +4 = 2+ (3+4) or (a + b) + c = a + (b + c) for all numbers a, b, and c.
