Associative Property is a multiplication problem that you can change the numbers around and still get the same product (total/answer).

Commutative property: When two numbers are multiplied together, the product is the same regardless of the order of the multiplicands. For example 4 * 2 = 2 * 4

associative property

There is no commutative property in subtraction or division because the order of the numbers cannot be change. This means that when multiplying or adding it does not matter the order of the numbers because the answer comes out the same.

the identity property is when you multiply a number and the product is the same as the number you multiply by * * * * * The identity property for a binary operation defined on a set of elements is one member of the set, denoted by i, such that for every member x which belongs to the set, x*i = i*x = x The set may consist of numbers, or square matrices, or other mathematical elements. The binary operation may be addition (if so, i = 0), multiplication (if so, i = 1) or some other operation. For any particaular operation on any particular set, the identity element, i, will be unique. But, as illustrated above, if you change the operation you may end up with another identity element.

You multiply the whole number and the denominator. Then then you add the numerator to the product. Numerator: top of fraction Denominator: bottom of fraction Product: is when you multiply, for example 4 x 4 = 16 so 16 is the product.
