3. In multiplication or addition - the order of two numbers may be switched around and the answer is the same. Ex: a+b = b+a. or (1x2) x 3=1x (2x3)

16. Answer to a division problem






17. 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)






18. Number divisible by 6






19. The smallest number in a group of numbers

30. Choosing numbers close to the numbers in a problem - and then adjusting the answer to compensate for the numbers chosen - E.g. 23 + 18 and 23+20=43 Since 2 was added to 18 to make 20 - we need to take 2 away from 43.
