Which two options could be the next step in simplifying this expression?
(18 + 23) + 7
41 + 7 (use order of operations)
30 + 25 (use the commutative property)
25 + 30 (use the distributive property)
18 + 30 (use the associative property)

hint, order of operations only applies when there's more than one type of operation, commutative means a operator b = b operator a, distributive needs 2 operators, and associative needs at least 3 numbers with the same operation
i think A.
Do you know what all of the math vocabulary means in the parentheses?

The answer is A and D.
(18 + 23) + 7 = 41 + 7
18 + (23 + 7) = 18 + 30
Do parenthesis 1st then the rest, A would be best answer.
But aren't they asking for two options meaning two answer choices?
@s01025881, the problem is it says the NEXT step. As you point out, D could be arrived at, but it takes the associative property + 1 additional step:
18 + (23 + 7) Associative
= 18 + 30 Order of operations
The 18 + 30 is not the result of the associative property, but the step after that.
