numbers to simplify, in the order given: the Distributive Property, the Associative

Property of Addition, the Commutative Property of Addition, and the Distributive

Property. Simplify the expression showing the use of each property.

i dont understand this at all can somebody give me an example of this?

**Steve**, Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 3:34pmMe either. No expression

**requires**the associative/commutative property to simplify it.

A.P means that (2+3)+4 = 2+(3+4) but you don't**need**it to evaluate.

C.P. means that 3+4 = 4+3 but you don't**need**it.

The only one you**need**to evaluate an expression is the D.P., so you can say

(2+3)(4) = 2*4 + 3*4 = 6+12 = 18

**ray**, Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 4:45pmso (2+3)(4)=2*4+3*4=6+12=18

would be a possible answer to this question?
