is this like a multiple choice or a writing answer?
a writing answer
ok ummm well there are 9 properties but you are probably taking algebra 1 which is focusing on the distributive, communitive, and associative.
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
do you know what each of the main 3 properties do?
The associative property is like simplifying pretty much for example instead of saying 2(3x) they want you to say 6x. Because 2*3x=6x
The communicative property is pretty much just moving the numbers around and NOT simplifying it. for example if your question is 4*3*x you know your answer would be 12x, but thats not what they want when you use the communicative property. They want you to move around the numbers in the original equation. So your answer could be 4*3*x or 4*x*3 or 3*x*4 or x*3*4 or x*4*3
The distributive property is probably one of the easiest in my opinion. the distributive property is pretty much multiplication distributed into the parentheses'. For example if you have 2(3y+5x) the first thing your going to do is multiply 2*3y to get 6y. Next your going to multiply 2*5x and get 10x which makes your answer 6y+10x. So mainly you are multiplying into parentheses with the distributive property.
I hope that all helps you, I put separate definitions with examples so you could see the difference and write up and explanation for your question. If your still confused or need more help let me know.
