Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That's not correct; associative property is an axiom that states if we have a sum associated to another, we can associate any term: \[a+(b+c)=(a+b)+c\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That is correct; distributive property describes that if an integer is multiplying a sum of other two, then it is exactly the same as the sum of both terms multiplied independantly by the first one: \[a(b+c)=ab+ac\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, you could solve that problem using the given expression, where "a" is the books that Marty read and then, we can conclude that the expression represents the sum of all the books in total they've read.
