You can do the easy bits first. Thus, to calculate 7*5*2, instead of doing 35*2 = 70, you can calculate 7*10 = 70. By itself, the associative property is not as useful as it is in combination with the commutative and distributive properties.

If you don't know something in a math equation you can replace it with a variable and then solve it algebraically.

Hearing music does indeed help you solve a math problem faster than usual. Music is known to have powers on the mind, it helps you concentrate better, boosts your learning abilities, & makes learning easier. So, next time you do homework, listen to some music...maybe you'll get everything right...

30-2=28 so 2x=28 28 divided by 2=14, so x is 14

Polygons are very much important mathematical property. We have a lots of use for this as geometrical measurements, advanced contractual engineering based architectural design and implementations.

Yes.

None whatsoever. You might find the distributive property useful when trying to calculate 39*74. Of course, if you are familiar with the 39 times table or the 74 times table, the distributive property is a complete waste of time! But somehow I doubt that level of arithmetic competence.

It is not. You simply multiply length x width.

Yes. The distributive property of multiplication over addition may help.

Why? - Mainly to help in solving equations.

The distributive property is simple. What I do is think of a double rainbow... 5(3+2) = This will be simple. 5 times 3 is fifteen, 5 times 2 is 10. Now that you know about the double rainbow trick, visit math is fun for help with the distributive property.

If you're talkin about the distributive property, here's an example of how to use it: 5(x + 4) You do 5*x= 5x and 5*4= 20 and you get 5x + 20 Get it? Hope could help :)

A proper question would help.

You'll need to insert the 'followings' before we can help you solve it.

the property says that a+b+c is the same as a+c+b and it is the commutative property of addition.
