00:00:01.290 --> 00:00:04.420
What are properties of addition and multiplication?
00:00:05.900 --> 00:00:09.800
Properties are statements that are true for all numbers.
00:00:11.080 --> 00:00:13.900
First up, commutative properties.
00:00:15.590 --> 00:00:18.720
Weβll start with the commutative property of addition.
00:00:21.000 --> 00:00:29.000
The commutative property of addition states that the order in which two numbers are added does not change their sum.
00:00:31.840 --> 00:00:39.570
A variable representation of that is π plus π is the same thing as saying π plus π.
00:00:41.710 --> 00:00:47.110
Or four plus three is the same thing as three plus four.
00:00:47.730 --> 00:00:50.170
The order doesnβt matter here.
00:00:52.780 --> 00:00:57.220
The commutative property can also be applied to multiplication.
00:00:59.750 --> 00:01:02.540
Look at the changes that happened on the screen.
00:01:04.170 --> 00:01:12.950
Commutative property of multiplication states that the order in which two numbers are multiplied does not change their product.
00:01:14.520 --> 00:01:20.050
In this case, π times π equals π times π.
00:01:21.690 --> 00:01:27.030
An example of that is five times four equals four times five.
00:01:29.310 --> 00:01:34.610
One way to remember the commutative property is to think about the word commute.
00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:44.650
The word commute and the word commutative relates to exchange, substitution, and interchange.
00:01:46.510 --> 00:01:53.790
Here with the commutative property, weβre specifically talking about when we change the order in which we add or multiply.
00:01:57.310 --> 00:02:02.280
And in this case, it does not change the value depending on the order.
00:02:04.310 --> 00:02:06.730
Next up, the associative property.
00:02:08.750 --> 00:02:10.650
And again weβll start with addition.
00:02:12.570 --> 00:02:21.430
The associative property of addition states the way three numbers are grouped when they are added does not change their sum.
00:02:23.330 --> 00:02:25.540
Hereβs what that looks like with variables.
00:02:26.590 --> 00:02:33.330
π plus π plus π equals π plus π plus π.
00:02:35.080 --> 00:02:49.350
What that means is if we add π and π together first and then add π, that sum is the same as if we added π and π together first and then added π.
00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:58.480
In this case, one plus two plus three equals one plus two plus three.
00:03:00.220 --> 00:03:03.660
One plus five equals three plus three.
00:03:05.690 --> 00:03:09.070
This property can also be applied to multiplication.
00:03:09.980 --> 00:03:11.410
Notice the changes here.
00:03:12.820 --> 00:03:21.060
The associative property of multiplication says the way three numbers are grouped when they are multiplied does not change their product.
00:03:22.640 --> 00:03:38.630
If we multiply π and π first and then take that value and multiply it by π, we will have the same product as if weβve multiplied π and π and then that value by π.
00:03:40.340 --> 00:03:44.570
We can remember the associative property with the word associate.
00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:48.790
Association deals with groupings.
00:03:51.170 --> 00:03:58.190
The way that three numbers are grouped when theyβre added or multiplied does not change their sum or their product.
00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:04.500
And third on our list, identity properties.
00:04:06.250 --> 00:04:16.900
Starting with the identity property of addition, this property states that the sum of an addend and zero is the addend.
00:04:17.640 --> 00:04:20.050
π plus zero equals π.
00:04:20.820 --> 00:04:24.620
Seven plus zero is seven.
00:04:25.030 --> 00:04:34.360
As we switch over to the identity property of multiplication, letβs look carefully at all the changes.
00:04:36.030 --> 00:04:43.470
The identity property of multiplication says the product of a factor and one is that factor.
00:04:44.870 --> 00:04:48.390
Our example, π times one equals π.
00:04:50.310 --> 00:04:56.320
Notice that the identity property of multiplication is multiplying the factor by one.
00:04:58.640 --> 00:05:00.810
Letβs look at these properties side by side.
00:05:02.640 --> 00:05:08.180
When we add zero to any value, weβre going to get the same value back.
00:05:10.040 --> 00:05:14.240
And when we multiply by one, the same thing happens.
00:05:15.620 --> 00:05:19.910
You can remember the identity property by thinking about looking in the mirror.
00:05:21.680 --> 00:05:24.860
π looks the same after you add zero.
00:05:25.720 --> 00:05:29.260
π also looks the same after you multiply it by one.
00:05:31.150 --> 00:05:33.760
Our last property is a little bit different.
00:05:35.360 --> 00:05:42.130
The distributive property shows us how we combine addition and multiplication.
00:05:43.420 --> 00:05:45.330
The distributive property says this.
00:05:45.940 --> 00:05:54.810
To multiply a sum by a number, multiply each addend of the sum by the number outside the parentheses.
00:05:56.560 --> 00:05:57.690
Thatβs a lot of words.
00:05:58.230 --> 00:05:59.700
Letβs see what that looks like.
00:06:00.980 --> 00:06:04.400
Letβs start by looking at an example that uses numbers.
00:06:06.130 --> 00:06:10.690
The property tells us to multiply a sum by a number.
00:06:11.600 --> 00:06:15.880
Hereβs our sum and hereβs the number.
00:06:17.560 --> 00:06:21.350
We need to multiply each addend of the sum.
00:06:22.800 --> 00:06:26.200
Four and six are the addends of the sum.
00:06:27.750 --> 00:06:34.160
And we multiply that by the number outside the parentheses, in this case, the three.
00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:42.330
If you solve both sides of the equation, you end up with thirty equals thirty.
00:06:44.640 --> 00:06:54.230
The distributive property helps us take this three and distribute it across the four and the six, the two addends of the sum.
00:06:56.040 --> 00:07:03.640
An algebra representation of the distributive property or a representation with variables would look like this.
00:07:04.340 --> 00:07:11.590
π times π plus π equals π times π plus π times π.
00:07:13.510 --> 00:07:22.180
What weβre doing here is weβre taking the π and weβre distributing it across the addend π and the addend π.
00:07:24.660 --> 00:07:27.220
This is also true in reverse.
00:07:28.680 --> 00:07:30.780
This is also true in reverse.
00:07:31.970 --> 00:07:39.160
In this example, we wanna take the π out, put it outside the parentheses and add the π and π first.
00:07:41.960 --> 00:07:43.820
Hereβs that example with numbers.
00:07:44.110 --> 00:07:54.340
Five times two plus five times three is the same thing as saying five times five or five times two plus three.
00:07:57.960 --> 00:08:01.550
Hereβs a chart to help you summarize all the different properties.
00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:08.360
These properties will be the foundation of solving all kinds of equations.
