That is, for any numbers a and b, we have the following. a Associative Property of Multiplication Changing the grouping of the factors does not change the product. That is, for any numbers a, b, and c, we have the following. (a ? b) ? c 5 a ? (b ? c) EXAMPLE 2 Demonstrate the commutative and associative properties of multiplication a. Show that 9 ? 7 5 7 ? 9. b. Show that 1(2 ? 3) 5 (1 ? 2)3. SOLUTION STRATEGY a. 9 ? 7 5 7 ? 9 63 5 63 Thus, 9 ? 7 5 7 ? 9. Multiply 9 · 7. Multiply 7 · 9. Commutative property of multiplication.

Step 2. If the digit to the right of the specified place is 4 or less, the digit in the specified place remains the same. If the digit to the right of the specified place is 5 or more, increase the digit in the specified place by one. Step 3. Change the digit in each place after the specified place to zero. EXAMPLE 4 Round a whole number to a specified place value Round each number to the specified place value. a. 416,286 to the nearest hundred b. 9212 to the nearest thousand c. 334,576,086 to the nearest million d.
