Associative Law
The "Associative Laws" say:

* It doesn't matter how you group the numbers when you add.

* It doesn't matter how you group the numbers when you multiply.

(In other words it doesn't matter which you calculate first.)

Example addition: (6 + 3) + 4 = 6 + (3 + 4)
Because 9 + 4 = 6 + 7 = 13

Example multiplication: (2 × 4) × 3 = 2 × (4 × 3)
8 × 3 = 2 × 12 = 24
