Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solve from these definitions Associative  Able to move around parenthesis and still get the same answer. Commutative  able to move numbers and variables and still get the same answer. Distributive  able to distribute a factor to two different numbers using the same property for instance k(79)=(k7)(k9)
