Yes sorry it's been a long day lol I just got out of a chemistry class and my sister asked for math help and I just brain farted. Thanks so much!

4. misty1212

in the associative law,the symbols stay in the same order, but the parentheses move i.e $\left(\frac{1}{6}\times 6\right)x$

5. misty1212

i guess they are trying to train her to say $\frac{1}{6}\times (6x)=x$
