  1. a+b = b+a
    • Commutative Property of Addition
    • the order in which two whole numbers are added does not change their sum.
  2. a x b = b x a
    • Commutative Property of Multiplication
    • the order in which two whole numbers are multiplied does not change their product.
  3. (a+b) + c = a + (b+c)
    • Associative Property of Addition
    • when the grouping of addends is changed, the sum is the same.
  4. (a x b) x c = a x (b x c)
    • Associative Property of Multiplication
    • the way factors are grouped does not change the product.
  5. a + 0 = a and 0 + a = a
    • The Addition Property of Zero
    • The sum of any whole number and 0 is the same whole number. 0 is called the "identity element for addition".
  6. a x 1 = a and 1 x a = a
    • Multiplication Property of One
    • the product of any whole number and 1 is the same whole number.
    • 1 is the identity element for multiplication.
  7. a x 0 = 0 and 0 x a = 0
    • Multiplication Property of Zero
    • the product of any whole number and 0 is 0.
  8. a - 0 = a and a - a = 0
    • Subtraction Property of 0
    • The difference of any whole number and 0 is the same whole number. AND the difference of any whole number and itself is 0.
  9. a ÷ 1 = a and a ÷ a =1

    • Division Property of One
    • A whole number divided by 1 will always result in the quotient being the same whole number as the dividend. AND a whold number divided by itself will always result in 1.
  10. For any whole number a, except 0:

    0 ÷ a= 0


    • Division Property of Zero:
    • 0 divided by any whole number will always result in 0.
  11. a x (b + c) = (a x b) + (a x c)
    and
    (b + c) x a = (b x a) + (c x a)
    • Distributive Property of Multiplication with Respect to Addition
    • multiplying a sum by a number is the same as multiplying each addend in the sum by the number and then adding the products.
  12. a x (b – c) = (a x b) – (a x c)

    and

    (b – c) x a = (b x a) – (c x a)

    • Distributitve Property of Multiplication with Respect to Subtraction
    • multiplying a difference by a number is the same as multiplying each number from the subtraction problem by the factor and then subtracting the products.
