’ properties of addition and multiplication
Below you can find a simple explanation of the three mathematical properties that characterize multiplication and addition.
The three properties are:
The commutative property Dell ’ addition says that the sum of any number and u number b is equal to the sum of a number b and a
a b = b a
Example: 1+2 = 2+1 1+2 = 3 2+1 = 3 -> 3 = 3 so the relationship is correct
Commutative property of multiplication is the same thing but changing symbol.
axb = bxa
Example: 1×2 = 2×1 1×2 = 2 2×1 = 2 -> 2 = 2 so the relationship is correct
The associative property shows how to add two terms and the third corresponds to sum the second two and then the first, changing the calculation precedence order ’ through the curly doesn't change the result.
(a b)+c = a (b c)
Example: (1+2)+3= 1+(2+3) 6 = 6 so the relationship is correct
The same goes for the associative property of multiplication, changing the symbol.
(1×2)x 3 = 1 x(2×3) 6= 6
Finally we find the distributive property. Multiply a number by the sum of the other two is equivalent to multiplying the single issue for each Addend and sum their results..
h x (b c)= a x b a x c
Example: 2 x (3+4)= 2×3 + 2×4 14= 14
