Nope. Its not possible

you can use commutative property anywhere as long as u keep the symbol -,+ and division and multiplacation ex 2 x 3 - 9 = 2-9 x 3

No. There is a property of numbers called the distributive property that proves this wrong. a- ( b - c) is NOT the same as (a-b) -c because: a-(b-c) = a-b+c by the distributive property a-b+c = (a-b) + c by the definition of () (a-b)+c is not always equal to (a-b)-c

The ASSOCIATIVE property states that the order in which the binary operation denoted by ~ is carried out does not matter.Symbolically, (a ~ b) ~ c = a ~ (b ~ c)and so, without ambiguity, either can be written as a ~ b ~ c.Addition and multiplication are common operations that are associative. Subtraction and division are not.Associative Property; * use of parenthesis it doesn't matter ho we group numbers to get and an sub [total\amount]

to divide u can use long division, partial quotients, repeated subtraction or distributive property

dont know about associative property but this one is easy in your head. 4x25=100x27=2700

it depends how the operation is

No. There is a property of numbers called the distributive property that proves this wrong. a- ( b - c) is NOT the same as (a-b) -c because: a-(b-c) = a-b+c by the distributive property a-b+c = (a-b) + c by the definition of () (a-b)+c is not always equal to (a-b)-c

you can not use commutative property for subtraction because if you switch them around you will end up with a negative number.

they use addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication

When you add or multiply, you can group the numbers together in any combination.
