True
False

True
False

True
False

#### Raised dot and parantheses

We usually use a raised dot, but not parentheses, for multiplication in order not to confuse readers with symbol which is commonly used in Algebra

True
False

#### In the notation 2b

The number 2 is an example of a constant because it does not change value

True
False

#### The Commutative Property of Addition

a + b = b + a

True
False

#### The Associative Property of Addition

(a + b) + c = a + (b + c)

True
False

When 0 is added to any number, the result is the same number

a + 0 = a                 or             0 + a = a

True
False

#### The Commutative Property of Multiplication

Changing the order when multiplying does not affect the answer

ba = ab

True
False

#### The Associative Property of Multiplication

Changing the grouping when multiplying does not affect the answer

(ab)c = a(bc)

True
False

#### Multiplication Property of 0

The product of 0 and any number is 0

0 . a = 0       and         a . 0 = 0

True
False

#### Multiplication Property of 1

The product of 1 and any number is that number

1 . a = a               and               a . 1 = a

True
False

#### Division Properties

Any number divided by 1 is the number itself.  Any number (except 0) divided by itself is 1

a / 1 = a             and          a / a = 1        provided a ≠ 0

True
False
