Date: 5/30/96 at 14:12:43 From: Doctor Darren Subject: Re: Associative property The associative property for addition merely states that: a+(b+c) = (a+b)+c. For multiplication, it would state that (ab)c = a(bc) I hope this helps. -Doctor Darren, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
