# Math Practice Topic: Associative Property 2

 Description: Completion of equations that demonstrate the associative property with multiplication. For example, since 2 * (3 * 4) = 24, then (2 * 3) * 4 = 24. Adaptive Learning Progression: Starts with computation to demonstrate that the associative property is correct, then lets you apply it. Start using MathScore for free
