Associative property does not work with subtraction because not all numbers can be subtracted and have the same results............

It does not work with subtraction nor division.

Yes it has closure, identity, inverse, and an associative property.

Type your answer here... no

No.

No you can not use subtraction or division in the associative property.

No, you cannot have subtraction in the associative property of multiplication because the associative property of multiplication is about multiplication. More to the point, if you're asking whether subtraction is associative, the answer is still no. (2 - 3) - 4 does not equal 2 - (3 - 4)

no it does not

Associative property does not work with subtraction because not all numbers can be subtracted and have the same results............

Nope. Its not possible

No, the associative property only applies to addition and multiplication, not subtraction or division. Here is an example which shows why it cannot work with subtraction: (6-4)-2=0 6-(4-2)=4

It does not work with subtraction nor division.

That would be the associative property. The associative property applies to addition and multiplication, but not to subtraction or division.

associative, distributive * * * * * That, I am afraid, is utter rubbish. A - (B - C) = A - B + C whereas (A - B) - C = A - B - C These two are NOT equal so the associative property does not hold. Subtraction does not have the distributine property, it is multiplication that has that property with regard to subtraction: A*(B - C) = A*B - A*C

because

Try it! You will probably get a negative number...

Subtraction is neither commutative property or association property because commutative property of multiplication is when you change the order of the factors the product stays the same and it isn't associated property because you can change the grouping of the factors the product stays the same you can't do that first attraction it wouldn't work it would be a negative zero.
