  1. When all members of the United States Senate meet, there are one hundred members present.

    One day, the 8 Republicans on the judiciary committee met together while the 8 Democrats met with the remaining members of the Senate.
    84 + 8 Dems in big room , 8 Repubs in other
    (84+8) + 8 = 100

    The next day, the entire judiciary committee met together while the rest of the Senate met.
    84 + room with 8 dems and 8 repubs = 100
    84 +(8+8) = 100
    So
    84 + (8 + 8) = (84 +8) + 8
    That is the Associate Property
    a + (b+c) = (a+b) + c

    The total number of senators remains at 100.
    100 = 84 + 16
