What is the associative property in math?
The associative property in math is a very important rule that is present in most all math problems. It states that if three or more numbers are being added or multiplied together, their final answer will be the same no matter how that numbers are grouped together.
For example, if we have a problem such as (3x3)x7, this will give us the exact same answer as 3x(3x7).
