ok thaanks in advance!

- muscrat123

okay so associative property is when u group the numbers differently, the same numbers, and the answer is the same no matter what

- kweenlexis

ok so answer is the same got it!

- muscrat123

so a(bc) equals (ab)c

- kweenlexis

can you please use numbers.

- muscrat123

okay sure

- kweenlexis

thanks

- muscrat123

3(4*5) equals (3*4)5

- kweenlexis

i have a question for probllems that say 9(8+7) for example

- kweenlexis

problems

- muscrat123

ok what is the question?

- muscrat123

like what does it say

- muscrat123

and btw what grade is this?

- kweenlexis

what are u suppose to do when the problem says 9(4+2) like what you do after you get
4+2=6
then you got
9n6
r u going to add subtract divide multipuly??

- kweenlexis

n im in 7th

- muscrat123

what does the n in "9n6" mean? and u would multiply. this isnt associative property tho

- kweenlexis

and

- kweenlexis

i know but i just need help on that and no body could explain it to me :) sorry

- muscrat123

oh okay when u have a # right next to ()s, then it means to multiply after u simplify/solve what is in the ()s

- kweenlexis

ty back to associative property!

- muscrat123

okay

- muscrat123

what do u not understand ?

- kweenlexis

like how to slove them and like if they was to give me a associative property and be like which property s this i like wouldnt do cause i truly know my properties very little cause i missed my class so i wasn't taught but i had to take the test and i made a 100% because i ask for help on here.

- muscrat123

okay so associative is when u group the #s differently but no matter where you put the ()s, it will always equal the same thing

- kweenlexis

ok i got it ALWAYS THE SAME

- muscrat123

yep :)

- kweenlexis

ok so can you give me a example problem and work it out for me then give me one to work out?

- kweenlexis

@muscrat123

- muscrat123

of what?

- muscrat123

associative property?

- kweenlexis

yeah

- muscrat123

kay

- muscrat123

3(4*5) = (3*4) 5

- muscrat123

so either way u solve, youll get the same answer
u can even do (3*5)4

- kweenlexis

hold on so the answer would be let me try it out first

- muscrat123

m'kay

- kweenlexis

would the answer be 60??

- muscrat123

yes and hang on

- kweenlexis

ok

- muscrat123

- kweenlexis

i see you used the tree

- muscrat123

|dw:1444168469313:dw|

- muscrat123

idk what happened to the other one hang on

- kweenlexis

ok

- muscrat123

|dw:1444168513567:dw|

- kweenlexis

ight i see

- muscrat123

srry its rlly messy

- muscrat123

if u want me to do another one w diiferent numbers i can

- kweenlexis

|dw:1444168554583:dw|

- kweenlexis

is tht like right?

- muscrat123

that is not associative property. it only works if the equation has a sign in between the 5 and the 2

- kweenlexis

ok i just saw it when i tried to check it lol

- muscrat123

like this|dw:1444168680183:dw|

- kweenlexis

|dw:1444168699670:dw|

- kweenlexis

|dw:1444168738775:dw|

- muscrat123

no

- kweenlexis

uhhh

- muscrat123

if there is addition in the ()s, then in front of the ()S has to be #+()

- muscrat123

or u r not using associative property

- kweenlexis

ok

- kweenlexis

|dw:1444168838177:dw|

- kweenlexis

that?

- muscrat123

no|dw:1444168873877:dw|

- kweenlexis

oh ok

- muscrat123

|dw:1444169164455:dw|
