00:00:00.770 --> 00:00:07.950
Evaluate 27 plus 29 plus 73 using the commutative and associative properties.
00:00:08.410 --> 00:00:15.430
The community property allows us to change something from π plus π to π plus π, switch around the order.
00:00:15.990 --> 00:00:23.770
The associative property allows us to add different numbers together first, but still with the same total.
00:00:24.260 --> 00:00:32.150
So we can take π plus parenthesis π plus π or we would need to add π and π together first.
00:00:33.140 --> 00:00:42.930
And it will actually be the exact same thing as taking π plus π inside the parenthesis, adding those together first then adding π.
00:00:43.070 --> 00:00:44.410
And we would still get the same number.
00:00:44.940 --> 00:00:49.430
So here we have our expression: 27 plus 29 plus 73.
00:00:50.150 --> 00:00:54.460
So weβre supposed to evaluate this using the commutative and associative properties.
00:00:54.890 --> 00:00:57.410
So letβs first begin by using the commutative property.
00:00:57.970 --> 00:01:06.560
Using the commutative property, we can use the commutative property to switch the order of adding the 73 and 29.
00:01:07.170 --> 00:01:15.830
So instead of having 27 plus 29 plus 73, we can have 27 plus 73 plus 29.
00:01:16.490 --> 00:01:27.410
And the associative property states as long as weβre adding or multiplying β but in this case weβre adding β we can add whichever two numbers together we would like first.
00:01:27.840 --> 00:01:33.790
So looking at the original expression, we would think we would add 27 and 29 together first.
00:01:34.200 --> 00:01:41.160
But here we can see weβre actually going to be adding 27 and 73 first, because theyβre inside the parentheses.
00:01:41.520 --> 00:01:49.670
So, 27 plus 73 is equal to 100, and 100 plus 29 is equal to 129.
00:01:50.250 --> 00:01:53.290
Therefore, 129 will be our final answer.
