Best Answer

The associative property refers to mathematical expressions where the order of the number is totally interchangeable and will still yield the same answer. Changing the order of a subtraction problem will give you a different answer. For example, 4 - 1 = 3. When switched, 1 - 4 does not equal 3. It equals -3.

Is divsion associative?

Division (and subtraction, for that matter) is not associative. Here is an example to show that it is not associative: (8/4)/2 = 2/2 = 1 8/(4/2) = 8/2 = 4 Addition and multiplication are the only two arithmetic operations that have the associative property.

How can you show the associative property of multiplication using the numbers 2 and negative 2?

Answer: The associative property involves three numbers, not two. Of course, you can use one of the numbers more than once. For example, show, by calculation, that (2 x 2) x -2 = 2 x (2 x -2).
