meilendurcer 2 years ago Which statement is an example of the Identity Property of Multiplication? 8 • 0 = 0 8 • 1 = 8 8 • –1 = –8 –8 • –1 = 8

The identity property of multiplication, also called the multiplication property of one says that a number does not change when that number is multiplied by 1. So, which one do you think it is?

2. meilendurcer

i think it's C

3. Zelda

4. meilendurcer

My first choice was A

5. Zelda

That's also wrong, it's specifically about n*1=n. Which choice reflects that?

6. meilendurcer

D?

Commutative property: When two numbers are multiplied together, the product is the same regardless of the order of the multiplicands. For example 4 * 2 = 2 * 4 Associative Property: When three or more numbers are multiplied, the product is the same regardless of the grouping of the factors. For example (2 * 3) * 4 = 2 * (3 * 4) Multiplicative Identity Property: The product of any number and one is that number. For example 5 * 1 = 5. \[\checkmark\] Distributive property: The sum of two numbers times a third number is equal to the sum of each addend times the third number. For example 4 * (6 + 3) = 4*6 + 4*3
