Associative Property Worksheet

                    Lesson 1

 

                                                              Problem:            Rewrite using the associative property.

                                                                                          

 (m + 3) +r

                                                                                                      

                                                             Solution              According to the associative property (a + b) +c  = (b + c) + a   

                                                             Step 1:    

                           

                                                             Solution              Therefore, (m + 3) + r = (3 +r) + m  

                                                             Step 2:                      

                            

                                                            Solution               Answer is: (3 + r) + m

                                                             Step 3:                                                           

                                                            Complete      

 

                                                            Try two practice problems:  

                                                           Rewrite using the associative property.

                                                                                          A.  Rewrite (3xm) x h          B.  Rewrite (9+1) + q
