Q:
# PLEASE HELP MEWhich equation applies the associative property of multiplication? A. 1/2⋅(5/8+3/6)=(1/2⋅5/8)+(1/2⋅3/6) B. (−4/11−2/3)−3/4=−4/11−(2/3−3/4) C. 4/9⋅(−3/8)⋅9/4=4/9⋅9/4⋅(−3/8) D. −12/5⋅(7/12⋅1/9)⋅8/5=(−12/5⋅7/12)⋅(1/9⋅8/5)

Accepted Solution

A:

The answer to your question is D. −12/5 ⋅ (7/12 ⋅ 1/9) ⋅ 8/5 = (−12/5 ⋅ 7/12) ⋅ (1/9 ⋅ 8/5)Why?: ~because the associative property of multiplication means that no matter which what you change the answer option, you'll still get the answer for example, if you multiply −12/5 ⋅ (7/12 ⋅ 1/9) ⋅ 8/5 The answer would be the exact same as (−12/5 ⋅ 7/12) ⋅ (1/9 ⋅ 8/5) because, if you go through this list of answers you'll see that they are the same, so you should get the same answer which is D. −12/5 ⋅ (7/12 ⋅ 1/9) ⋅ 8/5 = (−12/5 ⋅ 7/12) ⋅ (1/9 ⋅ 8/5)
