Properties of Multiplication

There are four multiplication properties. They are:
  • Commutative property
  • Associative property
  • Multiplicative identity
  • Distributive property

Commutative Property: When two numbers are multiplied together, the product is the same regardless of the order of the multiplicands.
Example: 2 * 3 = 3 * 2

Associative Property: When three or more numbers are multiplied, the product is the same regardless of the grouping of the factors.
Example: (5 * 6) * 7 = 5 * (6 * 7)

Multiplicative Identity Property: The product of any number and one is that number.
Example: 7 * 1 = 7.

Distributive Property: The sum of two numbers times a third number is equal to the sum of each addend times the third number.
Example: 2 * (4 + 3) = 2*4 + 2*3


Directions: Select the property shown in each question. Also, for each property, write five examples of your own.
