Q:

The following examples illustrate the associative property of multiplication.(5 · 3) · 6 = 5 · (3 · 6)2 · (1.1 · 0.1) = (2 · 1.1) · 0.1Study the examples, then choose the statement that best describes the property.a · (b · c) = (a · b) · ca · b · c = c · a · bb · c · a = (b · c · a)(a · b) · c = a · b

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:A) a • (b • c) = (a • b) • cStep-by-step explanation:The associative property of multiplication (or addition) shows that the order the numbers are multiplied it irrelevant, more specifically in the manners of parentheses.So, the answer is A, which can also be seen in that substituting a as 5, b as 3, and c as 6 gives us the first example.
