Associative property

Associative property is a property (which applies both to multiplication and addition) by which numbers can be added or multiplied in any order and still yield the same value,

e.g. (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)

or

(ab)c = a(bc)

Example for Associative property for addition

(a+b)+c = a+(b+c)

(2+3)+5 = 2+(3+5)

6+5 = 2+8

11 = 11

Example for Associative property for multiplication

(ab)c = a(bc)

(2 x 3) x 5 = 2 x (3 x 5)

6 x 5 = 2 x 15

30 = 30
