Question

Is using the associative property of addition a good strategy for simplifying (4/3 + 2/3) + 2? Why or why not?

Answers

  1. Answer:
    I say yes because when u solve it and flip the ( )’s, you get the same answer.
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Work:
    (4/3 + 2/3) + 2
    6/3 + 2
    2 + 2
    = 4
    4/3 + (2/3 + 2)
    4/3 + 8/3
    12/3
    = 4
    Hope this helps!!
