### Math Multiplication Properties

Question | Answer |
---|---|

What is the associative property of multiplication? = | When parenthesis are moved, but the order of the number stays the same |

What is the commutative property of multiplication? = | When the order of the numbers is changed, but the answer is the same |

What is the distributive property of multiplication? = | Breaking down one of two numbers being multiplied into two parts and expressing the result by addition: 14 x 5 = (10 x 5) + (4 x 5); In this case the 14 was broken into 10 and 4 because 10+4 = 14 |

Which are two examples of the associative property of multiplication? = | (2 x 5) x 4 = 2 x (5 x 4); 75 x (3 x 12) = (75 x 3) x 12 |

Which are two examples of the commutative property of multiplication? = | 23 x 6 = 6 x 23; 3 x 7 = 7 x 3 |

Which are two examples of the distributive property of multiplication? = | 30 x 4 = (20 x 4) + (10 x 4); 3 x 5 = (3 x 1) + (3 x 4) |

Which are NOT two examples of the distributive property of multiplication? = | 30 x 4 = (20 x 4) x (10 x 4); 3 x 5 = (3 x 1) + (3 x 4) |

According to Distributive Property for Multiplication: 4 x (5 + 7) = | (4 x 5) + (4 x 7) |

According to Distributive Property for Multiplication: 10 x (3 + 5) = | (10 x 3) + (10 x 5) |

According to Distributive Property for Multiplication: 3 x 6 = | 3 x (3 + 3), or 3 x (6 + 0), or 3 x (1 + 5), etc. |

According to Distributive Property for Multiplication: (8 + 15) x 9 = | (9 x 8) + (9 x 15) |

According to Distributive Property for Multiplication: 8 x 17 = | 8 x (2 + 15) = (8 x 2) + (8 x 15) |

According to Associative Property for Multiplication: 61 x (43 x 7) = | (61 x 43) x 7 |

According to Associative Property for Multiplication: (3 x 4) x 62 = | 3 x (4 x 62) |

According to Associative Property for Multiplication: (8 x 9) x 0 = | 8 x (9 x 0) |

According to Associative Property for Multiplication 34 x (6 x 2) is NOT: | (35 + 6) x 2 |

According to Associative Property for Multiplication 5 x (8 x 74) is NOT: | (5 x 8) + 74 |

According to Distributive Property for Multiplication, which makes a better choice to answer 8 x 17? Answer 1: 8 x (8 + 9) = (8 x 8) + (8 x 9); Answer 2: 8 x (10 + 7) = (8 x 10) + (8 x 7); or Answer 3: 8 x (10 + 5 + 2) = (8 x 10) + (8 x 5) + (8 x 2) | Answer 2: (8 x 10) + (8 x 7) = 80 + 56; or Answer 3: (8 x 10) + (8 x 5) + (8 x 2) = 80 + 40 + 16 |

To give what is OUTSIDE the parenthesis to everyone who is INSIDE the parenthesis explains which property? | The Distributive Property |

Use the Distributive Property of Multiplication to answer 8 x 16 | Answer 1: 8 x (10 + 5 + 1) = (8 x 10) + (8 x 5) + (8 x 1) = 80 + 40 + 8 = 128; or Answer 2: 8 x (10 + 6) = (8 x 10) + (8 x 6) = 80 + 48 = 128 |
