witch would be an example of associative:
1) (3 + 6x) - 5x
2)3 + (6x - 5x)
3)3 + (6 - 5)x
4)3 + (1)x
5)3 + x

When you have the associative property, you just change the grouping, but you would still get the same answer.

- anonymous

oh ok but what about multiplicative identity

- anonymous

commutative

okay, multiplicative identity means you can multiply any number by 1, and you'll get the same number.
and it's okay you're not good with math. Some people are, others aren't c: it's not a problem.

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

:)

- BloomLocke367

the commutative property is when you can change the order of numbers and you'll end up with the same thing. This would only work with addition or multiplication. For example 'a+b=b+a'. Does this stuff make sense to you?

- anonymous

yes thank you

- anonymous

it helps me for a test i'm studying for

at miner acadamy at bauxite high school

- BloomLocke367

You're welcome. :) The distributive property allows you to multiply a number or term with more than one term inside a set of parentheses. Would you like an example of that?

- anonymous

yes please

- BloomLocke367

|dw:1441549135846:dw| You would distribute the 3 to both the 2x and the 6 and multiply them.

Sorry that looks bad XD

- texaschic101

my brain must be fried because I am not seeing associative property in your answer choices....I see distributive, but not associative.

- anonymous

it's ok

- texaschic101

(3 + 6x ) - 5x = 3 + (6x - 5x)......that would be associative

- anonymous

ok

- texaschic101

possibly 3 as your answer...
3 + (6-5)x = 3 + 6x - 5x.....but I think that is distributive

- texaschic101

read this...it should help

- BloomLocke367

The one you gave is distributive, @texaschic101

- BloomLocke367

because you'd have to distribute the x

- BloomLocke367

I, personally, think it's option 2, because 6x-5x can be grouped without the final solution being changed.

- texaschic101

but look at the link I posted..look under associative...it has the x following the parenthesis as an example of associative

- BloomLocke367

Well, the way you solved it... made it distributive. it's all about how you solve it in some cases XD
