## Texas Go Math Grade 4 Lesson 5.7 Answer Key Use Properties of Addition

**Essential Question**

How can properties help you add fractions with like denominators?

Answer:

the commutative property of addition states that when finding a sum, changing the order of the addends will not change their sum. In symbols, the commutative property of addition says that for numbers

The associative property of addition states that when finding a sum, changing the way addends are grouped will not change their sum. In symbols, the associative property of addition says that for numbers

Mathematical Processes

Explain why grouping the fractions differently makes it to find the sum.

Answer:

Because mixed fractions are again converted to fractions

to find the sum

Explain why you would not group 2\(\frac{4}{8}\) and \(\frac{7}{8}\) together in parentheses.

Answer:

One is fraction and the other is mixed fraction

Example Add. (2\(\frac{7}{8}\) + 2\(\frac{5}{8}\)) + 3\(\frac{3}{8}\)

**Use the Associative Property**

Answer:

Explanation:

By using the associative property solved the addition sum of mixed fraction.

**Try This!**

Subtraction is not commutative or associative. When you subtract, perform operations in parentheses first. Then subtract from left to right.

a. 5\(\frac{8}{12}\) – \(\frac{2}{12}\) – \(\frac{1}{12}\) = _______ – \(\frac{1}{12}\) = ____________

Answer:

5\(\frac{8}{12}\) – \(\frac{2}{12}\) – \(\frac{1}{12}\) = 5\(\frac{6}{12}\) – \(\frac{1}{12}\) = 5\(\frac{5}{12}\)

Explanation:

First subtracted the whole then subtracted the fractions

b. \(\left(5 \frac{8}{12}-\frac{2}{12}\right)-\frac{1}{12}\) = ____________ – \(\frac{1}{12}\) = ____________

Answer:

(5\(\frac{8}{12}\) – \(\frac{2}{12}\) )- \(\frac{1}{12}\) =(5\(\frac{6}{12}\))

(5\(\frac{6}{12}\)) – \(\frac{1}{12}\) = 5\(\frac{5}{12}\)

Explanation:

First subtracted the whole then subtracted the fractions

c. \(5 \frac{8}{12}-\left(\frac{2}{12}-\frac{1}{12}\right)\) = 5\(\frac{8}{12}\) – ____________ = ____________

Answer:

5\(\frac{8}{12}\) – (\(\frac{2}{12}\) – \(\frac{1}{12}\) )= 5\(\frac{1}{12}\)

5\(\frac{8}{12}\)– \(\frac{1}{12}\) = 5\(\frac{7}{12}\)

Explain how you can use your answers to parts b and c to conclude that subtraction is not associative.

Answer:

The answer are different from part b to part c.
