Here are a list of arithmetic properties.
- Commutative Property of Addition
When two numbers are added, the result will be the same regardless of the order. For example:
- Associative Property of Addition
When a quantity of numbers greater than three are added together, the result will be the same no matter which order the numbers were added in. For example:
- Identity Property of Addition
The sum of any number(positive or negative, fraction, decimal, etc) and zero will equal that number. Of course, . Other examples include: and .
- Distributive Property
Note that this is the only property in which both addition and multiplication are used. When the sum of two numbers is multiplied by a third number, the product is equal to each addend multiplied by the same third number. For example: .
