    I think associative property because the numbers are still tin the same place the only thing that changed is where the parentheses were placed

    The associative property states that you can add or multiply regardless of how the numbers are grouped. By 'grouped' we mean 'how you use parenthesis'. In other words, if you are adding or multiplying it does not matter where you put the parenthesis

    Because they didn't move the numbers they just moved the parenthesis and whenever you do that you are using the associative property
