Properties of Addition:    You are here .
Properties involve in addition: They are
the commutative, associative, additive
identity and distributive properties.
Commutative property:  Any order you add numbers the sum
will be the same regardless of the order of the addends.
Example
6+7=13
and
7+6=13
Example
3+4=7
and
4+3=7
Associative Property: When you are adding three are more
numbers you can group them in any order and the sum will be
the same.
Example
Example
(9+2)+3=14
and
9+(2+3)=14
the sum is the same in any order
(6+4)+2=12
and
(2+4)+6=12
Additive Identity Property: The sum of any number and zero is
the original number. The value of a number does not change by
adding zero.
Example
Example
7+0=7          9+0=9         0+4=4                    8+0=8
Distributive property:The sum of two numbers times a third
number is equal to the sum of each addend times the third number.
For example 4 * (6 + 3) = 4*6 + 4*3
