Bonus Facts:
The associative property in math deals with how numbers can be grouped together when adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing. When 3 or more numbers are added or multiplied together, the associative property shows that the grouping of the numbers does not affect the result. (1+2) + 3 = 1 + (2 + 3). However, this is not true of subtracting or dividing.
