commutative, associative, distributive and multiplicative identity

Of the five common operations addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and power, both addition and multiplication are commutative, as well as associative. The other operations are neither.

You need the associative and commutative properties, but not the distributive property. n*4n*9 =n*(4n*9) (associative) = n*(9*4n) (commutative) = n*(36n) (associative) = 36n*n commutative = 36*n^2

the basic number properties in math are associative, commutative, and distributive associative: (for addition) a+(b+c)=(a+b)+c (for multiplication) a(bc)=(ab)c or a*(b*c)=(a*b)*c commutative: (for addition) a+b=b+a (for multiplication) a*b=b*a or ab=ba distributive: a(b+c)=ab+ac or a(b+c)=a*b + a*c

The associative and commutative are properties of operations defined on mathematical structures. Both properties are concerned with the order - of operators or operands. According to the ASSOCIATIVE property, the order in which the operation 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. According to the COMMUTATIVE property the order in which the addition is carried out does not matter. In symbolic terms, a + b = b + a For real numbers, both addition and multiplication are associative and commutative while subtraction and division are not. There are many mathematical structures in which a binary operation is not commutative - for example matrix multiplication.

In the case of addition: Commutative property: a + b = b + a Associative property: (a + b) + c = a + (b + c) Note that (1) the commutative property involves two numbers; the associative property involves three; and (2) the commutative property changes the order of the operands; the associative property doesn't. Repeatedly applying the two properties allow you to rearrange an addition that involves several numbers in any order.

The relevant properties are the commutative property, the associative property, and the property of zero (i.e., if you add zero to a number you get the same number again).
