Best Answer

The associative property means that in a sum (for example), (1 + 2) + 3 = 1 + (2 + 3). In other words, you can add on the left first, or on the right first, and get the same result. Similar for multiplication. How you use this in an equation depends on the equation.

Associative? Commutativity?

The associative property in algebra is important for organization of numbers. Rearranging the numbers and parenthesis will not change values but instead make the equation more convenient.

Sure. You can always 'solve for' a variable, and if it happens to be the only variable in the equation, than that's how you solve the equation.

There is no such thing as "solving integers". You can solve an equation, which means finding all the unknowns in that equation, but you can't solve an integer.
