Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When you have the associative property, you just change the grouping, but you would still get the same answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You'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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my brain must be fried because I am not seeing associative property in your answer choices....I see distributive, but not associative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(3 + 6x )  5x = 3 + (6x  5x)......that would be associative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0possibly 3 as your answer... 3 + (65)x = 3 + 6x  5x.....but I think that is distributive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because you'd have to distribute the x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I, personally, think it's option 2, because 6x5x can be grouped without the final solution being changed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but look at the link I posted..look under associative...it has the x following the parenthesis as an example of associative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, the way you solved it... made it distributive. it's all about how you solve it in some cases XD
