elcna one year ago Help please? The epression (3*x)*5 is evaluated at x=-1/5, the associative property of multiplication is applied, and one multiplication is done. Which is the result? A. (-3/5)*5 B. 3*(-1) C. 5*(-3/5) D. -3*(1)

1. anonymous

what do those asterisks mean?

2. anonymous

is it multiplication ?

3. elcna

Yes, the stars mean multiplication @satellite73

oh ok if you replace $$x$$ by $$-\frac{1}{5}$$ you get $3\times \left(-\frac{1}{5}\right)\times 5$

5. anonymous

if you multiply the last two terms first, this is the same as $3\times (-1)$
