## Envision Math 6th Grade Textbook Answer Key Topic 2.2 Properties of Operations

**Properties of Operations**

How can you use properties of operations to rewrite expressions?

Answer:

The Commutative Property of Addition states the order in which numbers are added does not change the sum of the numbers. The Commutative Property of Multiplication states the order in which numbers are multiplied does not change the product of the numbers.

**Guided Practice**

**Do you know HOW?**

Answer:

See margin.

Explanation:

Question 7.

☐ × (14 × 32) = (5 × 14) × 32

Answer:

Question 8.

5 + 23 + 4 = 23 + 4 + ☐

Answer:

Question 9.

25 + 0 + (3 + 16) = (25 + ☐) + 3

Answer:

Question 10.

(7 + 1 2) + 4 = (7 + ☐) + 12

Answer:

Question 11.

(5 × 7) (3 × 8) = (5 × 3) × (8 × ☐)

Answer:

Question 12.

(43 × 1) × 4 = ☐ × 43

Answer:

Question 13.

(6 + 3) + 4 = 6 + (3 + ☐)

Answer:

Question 14.

(8 × 9) × ☐ = 8 × (9 × 10)

Answer:

Question 15.

7 × ☐ = 6 × 7

Answer:

Question 16.

15 + 48 = ☐ + 15

Answer:

Question 17.

8 + ☐ = 4 + 8

Answer:

Question 18.

(1 × 2) × 3 = ☐ × (2 × 3)

Answer:

The Associative Property of Addition states that the way numbers are grouped does not affect the sum.

a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c

2 + (8 + 10) = (2 + 8) + 10

The Associative Property of Multiplication states that the way numbers are grouped does not affect the product.

a × (b × c) = (a × b) × c

2 × (4 × 5) = (2 × 4) × 5

The Identity Property of Addition states that adding zero to a number does not change the number.

a + 0 = a

24 + 0 = 24

The Identity Property of Multiplication states that the product of a number and one is that number.

a × 1 × a

36 × 1 × 36

Find each missing number. Tell what property or properties are shown.

Question 19.

(41 × 43) × (3 × 19) = (41 × ☐) × (19 × 43)

Answer:

Question 20.

(5 × 3) × ☐ = 5 × (8 × 3)

Answer:

Question 21.

328 × 1 = ☐

Answer:

Question 22.
