Associative Property

The associative property states that you can change the groupings of numbers being added or multiplied without changing the sum. For example: (2+3) + 4 = 2 + (3+4), and (2 X 3) X 4 = 2 X (3 X 4).Commutative Property

The commutative property states that the order in which two numbers are added or multiplied does not affect the sum or product. For example .distributive property

The distributive property states that the product of an expression and a sum is equal to the sum of the products of the expression and each term in the sum. For example, .like terms

Terms are considered like terms if they are composed of the same variables with the same exponents on each variable.### Image Attributions
