The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

1. The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

There are three major properties that deal with the addition and multiplication of numbers. One of those properties is the commutative property. This lesson will define and give examples of the commutative property and how it works.

Additive Identity: Definition & Examples

2. Additive Identity: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you will learn the definition of the additive identity property and its meaning when applied to various kinds of numbers such as real, imaginary and complex numbers. We will also look at the application of the additive property for sets of numbers.

Identity Property: Definition & Examples

3. Identity Property: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you will learn the definition of the identity property, discover the four different identity properties and examine examples that clearly illustrate these properties. Following this lesson will be a brief quiz to test your knowledge.

The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

4. The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

There are three basic number properties that help to form the backbone of algebra. One of those properties is the associative property. This lesson will define the associative property and give some examples of how it works.

Inverse Property: Definition & Examples

5. Inverse Property: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you will learn the definition of inverse property as it applies to different types of numbers. You will also look at examples that show you how to find the additive inverse and multiplicative inverse of a number.

Inverse Operations in Math: Definition & Examples

6. Inverse Operations in Math: Definition & Examples

In mathematics, inverse operations are operations that 'undo' each other. Most operations have an inverse. This lesson describes the most common operations and their inverses, and it provides some examples and a quiz to cement your knowledge.

The Multiplication Property of Zero: Definition & Examples

7. The Multiplication Property of Zero: Definition & Examples

The number zero has different rules than other numbers; it behaves according to it's own unique properties. This lesson will define the multiplication property of zero and give some examples of how it works.

Distributive Property: Definition, Use & Examples
