Read the questions carefully.

Identify the property in each.

Example: 5* (4 + 6) = 5*4 + 5*6 is an example of _______ property? Answer: distributive Directions: Identify the property in each of the following questions. Also write 5 examples of distributive property.

Q 1: An example of Distributive Property of Multiplication is 12 + (8 + 9) = (12 + 8) + 9 (2+ 6) + 3 = 2 + (6 + 3) 12 x (6 + 5) = (12 x 6) + (12 x 5)

Q 2: Identify the property shown by this example: 12 + 23 = 23 + 12 Distributive Property of Addition Associative Property of Addition Commutative Property of Addition

Q 3: Identify the property shown by this example: 7 x 8 = 8 x 7 the Associative Property of Multiplication the Distributive Property of Multiplication the Commutative Property of Multiplication

Q 4: Addends can be added in any order without changing the sum. This property is called the Distributive Property of Addition the Commutative Property of Addition the Associative Property of Addition

Q 5: An example of Commutative Property is: 2 + 0 = 2 5 + 3 = 3 + 5 2 * (5 + 3) = 2 * 5 + 2 * 3

Q 6: Identify the property shown by this example: (9 + 8) + 6 = 9 + (8 + 6) the Distributive Property of Addition the Associative Property of Addition the Commutative Property of Addition
