Step: 1

4 + (5 + 3), (4 + 5) + 3 illustrates same sum. But grouping of addends is changed.

Step: 2

According to associative property of addition, changing the grouping of the addends does not change the sum.

Step: 3

So, 4 + (5 + 3), (4 + 5) + 3 illustrates associative property of addition.

Correct Answer is : Associative property of addition

Step: 1

According to associative property of addition, changing the grouping of addends does not change the sum.

Step: 2

4 + (6 + 1) = (4 + 6) + __1__

[Use associative property of addition.]

Correct Answer is : 1

Step: 1

The sum of the expression (5 + 8) + 3 is (13) + 3 = 16.

[Add.]

Step: 2

The associative property of addition states that "the grouping of addends when changed in a problem does not change the sum. "

Step: 3

So, (5 + 8) + 3 = 5 + (8 + 3) = 16.

[Use the associative property of addition.]

Correct Answer is : 5 + (8 + 3)

Step: 1

The sum of the expression (40 + 40) + 3 is (80) + 3 = 83.

[Add.]

Step: 2

The associative property of addition states that "the grouping of addends when changed in a problem does not change the sum."

Step: 3

So, (40 + 40) + 3 = 40 + (40 + 3) = 83.

[Use the associative property of addition.]

Correct Answer is : 40 + (40 + 3)

Step: 1

Total amount earned by them = Amount Edward earns + amount Nathan earns + amount Jeff earns

Step: 2

= $90 + $10 + $56

[Substitute the values.]

Step: 3

= ($90 + $10) + $56

[Use associative property of addition.]

Step: 4

= $100 + $56 = $156

[Work inside the grouping symbols and add.]

Step: 5

So, they earn $156 per day altogether .

Correct Answer is : $156

Step: 1

Total number of books arranged in all the three shelves = number of books arranged in the first shelf + number of books arranged in the second shelf + number of books arranged in the third shelf

Step: 2

= 180 + 220 + 162

[Substitute the values.]

Step: 3

= (180 + 220) + 162

[Use associative property of addition.]

Step: 4

= 400 + 162 = 562

[Work inside the grouping symbols and add.]

Step: 5

So, 562 books are arranged in all the three shelves.

Correct Answer is : 562

Step: 1

Total number of chairs arranged in all the three rows = number of chairs arranged in the first row + number of chairs arranged in the second row + number of chairs arranged in the third row

Step: 2

= 18 + 35 + 65

[Substitute the values.]

Step: 3

= 18 + (35 + 65)

[Use associative property of addition.]

Step: 4

= 18 + 100 = 118

Step: 5

So, 118 chairs are arranged in all the three rows.

Correct Answer is : 118

Step: 1

Total number of chocolates ate by all of them = number of chocolates ate by Jeremy + number of chocolates ate by Dennis + number of chocolates ate by Louis

Step: 2

= 60 + 40 + 54

[Substitute the values.]

Step: 3

= (60 + 40) + 54

[Use associative property of addition.]

Step: 4

= 100 + 54 = 154

[Work inside the grouping symbols and add.]

Step: 5

So, they ate 154 chocolates altogether.

Correct Answer is : 154

Step: 1

Total number of hamburgers cooked by all of them = number of hamburgers cooked by Jerald + number of hamburgers cooked by Charles + number of hamburgers cooked by Tony

Step: 2

= 8 + 4 + 4

[Substitute the values.]

Step: 3

= (8 + 4) + 4

[Use associative property of addition.]

Step: 4

= 12 + 4

[Work inside the grouping symbols and add.]

Step: 5

= 16

Step: 6

So, the total number of hamburgers cooked by all of them = 16.

Correct Answer is : 16
