To determine

## To rewrite: the given expression by Properties of real numbers.

Expert Solution

Using Associative Property of multiplicationof real numbers the expression can be written as 8y .

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An expression is given as

43(6y)

Concept used:

Associative Property of multiplication of 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

Calculation:

Consider the expression and simplify as shown:

43(6y)=(436)y=42y=8y

Therefore, 43(6y) , can be written by using Associative Property of multiplicationof real numbers, as 8y .
