Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 16E
To determine

To rewrite: the given expression by using Associative Property of multiplication.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 16E

Using Associative Property of multiplicationof real numbers the expression can be written as (73)x .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An expression is given as

  7(3x)

Calculation:

Associative Property of multiplicationof real numbers:

If three real numbers are multiplied then the result does not depend on the order of multiplication.

Suppose a,b, and c are three real numbers, Associative Property of multiplication says that

  a(bc)=(ab)c

Therefore, 7(3x) , can be written by using Associative Property of multiplicationof real numbers, as (73)x .

  7(3x)=(73)x
