# Multiplication Properties

### I can apply properties of operations

## COMMUTATIVE PROPERTY

Order doesn't matter!

2 x 3 = 3 x 2

## ASSOCIATIVE PROPERTY

The grouping of numbers doesn't matter.

(4 x 6) x 7 = 4 x (6 x 7)

## IDENTITY PROPERTY

Any number multiplied by 1 equals the number.

n x 1 = n

## DISTRIBUTIVE PROPERTY

The sum of two numbers times a third number is equal to the sum of each addend times the third number.

4 x 6 = (4 x 3) + (4 x 2)
