1. A property indicating a special way in which multiplication is applied to addition of two or more numbers in which each term inside a set of parentheses can be multiplied by a factor outside the parentheses - such as a(b + c) = ab + ac - or 7x (4+1)=






2. The largest number in a group of numbers






3. PEMDAS - Parentheses - Exponents - Multiplication & Division (L to R) - Addition & Subtraction (L to R)

8. Multiplying fractions






9. Properties of numbers btw -1 and 1






10. A number that results from multiplying a factor by itself

18. Answer to a multiplication problem






19. Reducing fractions






20. To place a fraction in lowest terms






21. The value of a digit based on its position within a number - e.g. 2 -432 The position of the numbers






22. Average A per B

31. In 4x4=16 - what is 4?






32. Add up the digits; if the sum is a multiple of 3 the number is divisible by 3

34. Number divisible by 3






35. A property of real numbers that states that the sum or product of a set of numbers is the same - regardless of how the numbers are grouped - (a+b)+c=a+(b+c) - e.g. (1+2)+3=1+(2+3)
