### Which property is demonstrated in "2 + (3 + 4) = (2 + 3) + 4"?

• A.

Commutative Property of Multiplication

• B.

• C.

Associative Property of Multiplication

• D.

Explanation
The given equation "2 + (3 + 4) = (2 + 3) + 4" demonstrates the Associative Property of Addition. This property states that the grouping of numbers being added does not affect the sum. In other words, it doesn't matter how we group the numbers being added, the sum will remain the same. In this case, we can group the numbers in two different ways: either by adding 3 and 4 first, or by adding 2 and 3 first. Both ways will result in the same sum of 9.
