The Associative Rule helps us rearrange terms in an expression or on one side of an equation without changing its value. Be careful, though; this rule only works with certain operations. Examples are provided using the associative property with different operations to give you necessary skills for applications. Learn to identify properties that allow the associative rule and which do not.
