may be used to demonstrate the truth of
a) 3x4=4x3
b) 3x4x5
c) 3x(4+5)=3x4 + 3x5
d) (3+4)+5=3+(4+5)

you have 2 rows, each with 3+4 stars
So, what do you think?
Hint: distributive property
In #2, there is no multiplication, just 3+4+5 stars
So, what do you think?
Hint: associative property 
I'm not sure about #1 but is #2 d?

Is #1 c?

you are correct on both of them. Good work.
