What Are Unique Properties of Multiplication?
To be able to solve multiplication sums and problems with ease and convenience, kids must have a clear understanding of multiplication properties. These properties always hold true, no matter how complex a problem is. These properties are very helpful in solving multiplication problems.
**Commutative Property**- This is when two or more numbers have multiplied. The order of multiplication does not affect the answer. Rearranging the factors will provide the same answer as the original expression.
axb=bxa
**Associative Property** -This states that in multiplication, the grouping of numbers does not matter. Grouping in an expression is a sum within the brackets that have to be solved first.
(axb)xc=ax(bxc)
**Identity Property**- This is when an element is multiplied by 1; it remains unchanged. In multiplication, an identity element is 1.
**Distributive Property**- This is when a number is multiplied to a sum in parenthesis, and when it is separately multiplied by each element of the sum, the parenthesis can be removed.
2x(5+6)= 2 x 5 + 2 x 6
These are the four basic properties of multiplication, which will help people solve multiplication problems with ease.
