Which of the following shows 3 + (x + 6y) rewritten using the associative property of addition?

a 3 + x + 6y

b 3x + (6 + y)

c x + (3 + 6y)

d (3 + x) + 6y

In your given expression, you group x and 6y since they are in parentheses, The associative property tells you that you can change the grouping in an addition.

Don't change the order of the things you're adding, but change just the grouping.

Group the 3 and the x together. Use parentheses.

x + (3 + 6y)

Step-by-step explanation:

This shows that you can regroup the numbers however you want with addition and multiplication, so this is the right answer.

Hope this helps!

It is (3+x) + 6y, since however you add the following you shall get 3 + (x + 6y)

The answer is x + (3+6y). This is because the associative property of addition is when the parenthesis change its place, however, the value still stays the same. This choice shows that.

3 + x + 6y is your answer (A).

Hope this helps you out!

A is your answer because you will add 3 to the result of x + 6y.

so it will 3 +x+ 6y= ?
