### Which property does the following expression represent? 8 * 1 = 8

• A.

Distributive Property

• B.

Identity Property of Multiplication

• C.

Commutative Property of Multiplication

• D.

B. Identity Property of Multiplication
Explanation
The expression 8 * 1 = 8 represents the Identity Property of Multiplication. This property states that when any number is multiplied by 1, the result is the original number. In this case, when 8 is multiplied by 1, the product is 8, which is the same as the original number.

### Which property does the following expression represent? (4+7)+3=4+(7+3)

• A.

Distributive Property

• B.

Associative Property of Multiplication

• C.

• D.

Explanation
The given expression represents the Associative Property of Addition. This property states that when adding three or more numbers, the grouping of the numbers does not affect the sum. In the given expression, the numbers 4, 7, and 3 are added together. The expression shows that whether we group (4+7) first and then add 3, or group 7 and 3 first and then add 4, the result will be the same. This demonstrates the Associative Property of Addition.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### The following expression represents the Identity Property of Multiplication. 3 * 0 = 0

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The given expression 3 * 0 = 0 does not represent the Identity Property of Multiplication. According to the Identity Property of Multiplication, any number multiplied by 1 will be equal to that number. In this case, 3 * 0 is equal to 0, not 3. Therefore, the given expression does not demonstrate the Identity Property of Multiplication.

### Which one of the following is the correct answer for 3(x+2)

• A.

3x+2

• B.

3x+6

• C.

X+6

• D.

3

B. 3x+6
Explanation
The correct answer is 3x+6 because when we distribute the 3 to both terms inside the parentheses, we get 3 times x which is 3x, and 3 times 2 which is 6. Therefore, the expression simplifies to 3x+6.

### Find the perimiter of the rectangle shown on the following picture.

• A.

4x

• B.

12x

• C.

6x

• D.

8x

B. 12x
Explanation
The perimeter of a rectangle is found by adding up the lengths of all four sides. In this case, the lengths of the sides are given as 4x, 12x, 6x, and 8x. Adding these lengths together gives us a total perimeter of 30x.

• 6.

### Which one of the following is the identify property for addition?

• A.

3 + 0 = 3

• B.

3 * 1 = 3

• C.

3 + 7 = 7 + 3

• D.

3 + -3 = 0

• E.

3 * 0 = 0

A. 3 + 0 = 3
Explanation
The identity property for addition states that when any number is added to zero, the result is the original number. In the given options, the equation 3 + 0 = 3 satisfies this property. Adding 0 to 3 does not change the value of 3, making it the identity element for addition.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### What property is this an example of :  8 + (9 + 6) = 8 + ( 6 + 9)

• A.

Commutative

• B.

Associative

• C.

Distributive

• D.

Inverse

B. Associative
Explanation
8 + (9 + 6) = 8 + (6 + 9)
is the associative property of addition.
According to the associative property of addition, the grouping of numbers in addition does not affect the sum. In other words, you can change the grouping of the numbers being added, and the result will remain the same. This property holds true for addition because the order in which numbers are added does not change the total sum.
