The associative property of a mathematical expression means that the order of the operations can be changed or regrouped so long as the operands (numbers or terms) are not changed.
If you have the expresion 5 + (2 + 3), you can regroup it, e.g. (5 + 2) + 3, and get the same answer, 10, due to the associative property.
In mathematics, the associative property is a property of some binary operations.

This prealgebra lesson defines and explains the associative property of addition.
The addition or multiplication of a set of numbers is the same regardless of how the numbers are grouped. When we change the groupings of factors, the product does not change:
(3 x 2) x 4 = 24 or 3 x (2 x 4) = 24.
Changing the grouping of addends does not change the s... More »
