This math video tutorial gives a step by step explanation to a math problem on "Associative Property Of Multiplication".

Associative property of multiplication video involves arithmetic operations, associative property, associative property of multiplication, multiplication, operations, properties of multiplication. The video tutorial is recommended for 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, 5th Grade, 6th Grade, 7th Grade, and/or 8th Grade Math students studying Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Arithmetic, Basic Math, and/or Pre-Algebra.

The order of operations does not matter as long as the sequence of the operands is not changed within an expression containing two or more of the same associative operators in a row.

Associative property of multiplication states that for all real numbers a, b, and c, their product is always the same, regardless of their grouping:

(a × b) × c = a × (b × c)

Example:

(3 × 5) × 8 = 3 × (5 × 8)

(a × b) × c = a × (b × c)

Example:

(3 × 5) × 8 = 3 × (5 × 8)

Multiplication is in essence repeated addition, or the sum of a list of identical numbers. Multiplication finds the product of two numbers, the multiplier and the multiplicand, sometimes both simply called factors.

Multiplication, as it is really repeated addition, is commutative and associative; further it is distributive over addition and subtraction. The multiplicative identity is 1, that is, multiplying any number by 1 will yield that same number. Also, the multiplicative inverse is the reciprocal of any number, that is, multiplying the reciprocal of any number by the number itself will yield the multiplicative identity.
