- ShadowCain

C. associative property of addition

we have 12+0=12
12 is the same as 12
does that sound like an identity or associative property?

and I meant to say 12+0 is the same as 12*
associative property we are changing where the grouping symbols are

- ShadowCain

The identity property for addition tells us that zero added to any number is the number itself. Zero is called the "additive identity." The identity property for multiplication tells us that the number 1 multiplied times any number gives the number itself.

- freckles

and we have 12+0=12... so you think the answer is...

- freckles

hint: that operation definitely isn't multiplication

- ShadowCain

I know it's not multiplication. You are explaining step 2
(5 + 5) + (12 + 0)
The question is about Step 3

- freckles

yes in step 3 they have wrote 12+0 as 12

- freckles

you are almost there you even defined this property above

- ShadowCain

B. identity property of addition

- freckles

yes!!!
The identity property for addition tells us that zero added to any number is the number itself. Zero is called the "additive identity."
This is equivalent to saying a+0=a
The identity property for multiplication tells us that the number 1 multiplied times any number gives the number itself.
a*1=a
