00:00:01.760 --> 00:00:05.490
Complete the expression, stating which property is being used.
00:00:06.250 --> 00:00:13.150
53 times one is equal to one times blank equals 53.
00:00:14.150 --> 00:00:24.110
We know that 53 times one is equal to 53, and then one times something should equal 53.
00:00:25.560 --> 00:00:28.560
So we can set it up as an equation.
00:00:28.620 --> 00:00:34.290
One times something equals 53, so we would divide both sides by one.
00:00:35.080 --> 00:00:36.710
On the left, the ones cancel.
00:00:37.440 --> 00:00:43.550
So we have đť‘Ą equals 53 divided by one, which is equal to 53.
00:00:44.600 --> 00:00:47.490
Therefore, the number 53 would complete this expression.
00:00:49.050 --> 00:00:55.580
While 53 completes our expression, itâ€™s the multiplicative identity property that is being used.
00:00:56.710 --> 00:01:03.660
So imagine, what can you multiply to a number that would allow it to keep its identity?
00:01:04.150 --> 00:01:16.050
That number is one, so here our expression is stating 53 times one is the same thing as one times 53, and thatâ€™s equal to 53.
00:01:16.740 --> 00:01:26.400
So by multiplying by one, no matter if you multiply 53 times one or one times 53, 53 has kept its identity.
00:01:27.020 --> 00:01:33.390
So 53 completes our expression and we are using the multiplicative identity property.
