This module discusses the properties of numbers.
Associative property applies to both addition and multiplication: a+(b+c)=(a+b)+c, a*(b*c)=(a*b)*c.
Distributive property ties addition and multiplication together. Distributive property can be written as: a*(b+c) = a*b + a*c.
Commutative property means that operands can switch places: a+b=b+a, a*b=b*a.
