(01.02 HC)Andrew is showing his work in simplifying (−5.7 + 2.2) − 1.1.

Step 1: (2.2 − 5.7) − 1.1

Step 2: 2.2 − (5.7 + 1.1)

Step 3: 2.2 − (6.8)

Step 4: −4.6

Which statement is true?

1. In step one andrew used the commutative property

2. in step 2 andrew used distributive property

3. in step 3 andrew used the associative property

4. In step 4 andrews answer is incorrect

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Answer: AStep-by-step explanation:Let’s fact check all the answer choices:A. He used the commutative propertyWell, the commutative property states that you can put the equation in any order and the result doesn’t change. In step1, andrew makes the equation -5.7+2.2 into 2.2-5.7. Both of these equations equal -3.5, so yes, he used the commutative property.B.He used the distributive property.We know this is wrong because the distributive property involves multiplication. An Example of an equation that involves the distributive property is 3(2+1), or 3x(2+1).C. He used the associative property.This is wrong because the associative property involves grouping the equation into different parentheses , which doesn’t happen.D. The answer is incorrectUsing a calculator , we know this is wrong.Hope this helps :)) Also if i could have brainliest id really appreciate it 😀
