The property

**Associative Property Of Multiplication**is a subset of Properties Of Multiplication. To learn about other properties of multiplication see Properties Of Multiplication.

- Associatively means that changing the order of number groups does not change the
answer. That is, changing the parentheses in a math problem will not change the
answer. Example:

(3 x 2) x 1 = 2 x (1 x 3)

6 x 1 = 2 x 3

6 = 6

## Practical Example |
## Abstract Example |
---|---|

(1 x 2) x 3 = 1 x (2 x 3) 2 x 3 = 1 x 6 6 = 6 |
(a x b) x c = a x (b x c) |
