There is only one associative property for multiplication: there is not a separate "regular" version.

If there is an equals sign between the 3 and 5 of 35, then it is the associative property of multiplication.

No. Rearranging numbers [2+3=3+2] is the commutative property. The associative property involves rearranging parentheses - (3 x 4) x 6 = 3 x (4 x 6).

I am guessing your problem is to compute 5 times 2 times 13. In this case, the property you are using the associative property.

Will you show an example problem? 5+2=8-1

There is no property which allows you to do that in all cases. It is only possible in the case of the associative property for addition and multiplication. It does not work for subtraction or division.

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.

Which property is illustrated in this problem? (associative, distributive, identity, or commutative) 7d + 3 = 3 + 7d

The property of "we have no idea what you're talking about". Do you people bother to proofread these questions, or do you just paste them in and expect us to be psychic? Okay. Activating my powers.... my psychic prediction is that the property that's illustrated is that division (or possibly subtraction, though I think that's less likely) is not associative.

The addition or multiplication of a set of numbers is the same regardless of how the numbers are grouped. The associative property will involve 3 or more numbers. The parenthesis indicates the terms that are considered one unit.The groupings (Associative Property) are within the parenthesis. Hence, the numbers are 'associated' together. In multiplication, the product is always the same regardless of their grouping. The Associative Property is pretty basic to computational strategies. Remember, the groupings in the brackets are always done first, this is part of the order of operations.
