You can multiply any of the two numbers first, then multiply the product by the third one.
1x8x5 8x1x5 4x6x8 3x2x4 6x4x8
6 x 4 = 24 3 x 8 = 24 2 x 12 = 24
associative property i think 3x2x4= 2x4x3
You can use Factor tRee method by example. 24 / / 3 x 8 / / / 3 x 2 x 4 / / / / 3 x 2 x 2 x 2 24 3x8=24 3x2x4=24 Explanation: 24 can be divided by 3 and 8 Since 8 is a composite number we need to continue until the last numbers are all prime Numbers there is a prime number in 3x8 then just bring it down with the factors of 8. Remember 1: If there is a composite number divide it until it becomes into a prime number. Remember 2: If there is a prime number then you have a composite number and in remember no. 1 I said that divide so that it could become a composite number what you will do with your prime number is that just bring it down along with the divided or factors of 8. Thats All Thank You hope I helped you! ^_^ -A
