solve the equation step by step.list each step along with the property you used during that step.
-5 x 1 x 11 x 4

  • pre algebra - ,

    -5 x 1 x 11 x 4

    Look for multiplying numbers together that end up being multiples of 10; -5*4 = -20, so using the associative property

    -5 x 1 x 11 x 4 = (-5 x 1 x 11) x 4
    Using the commutative property:

    = 4*(-5 x 1 x 11) = 4*-5 x 1 x 11 =
    (4*-5) x (1 x 11) = -20 * 11
    Factoring the 20:

    = (-2*10)*11
    Using the commutative property, and then associative property:

    = 11*(-2*10) = (11*-2)*10 = -22 * 10 = -220
