Jane and her family are driving to Big Lagoon State Park. On the first day, they travel $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of the total distance. On the second day, they travel $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of the total distance in the morning and then $$\frac{1}{6}$$ of the total distance in the afternoon. How much of the total distance has Janeâ€™s family driven by the end of the second day?

Use the Associative Property

Day 1 + Day 2

So, Jane’s family has driven _________ of the total distance by the end of the second day.

So, Jane’s family has driven $$\frac{4}{6}$$ of the total distance by the end of the second day.

Explain Why grouping the fractions differently makes it easier to find the sum.
Because, Adding 2 fraction makes very tough
so, grouping the fractions differently makes it easier to find the sum.

Example

Use the Commutative Property and the Associative Property.

Try This!

Subtraction is not commutative or associative. When you subtract, perform operations in parentheses first. Then subtract from left to right.
a. $$\frac{7}{8}$$ – $$\frac{1}{2}$$ – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = __________ – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = ____________
$$\frac{7}{8}$$ – $$\frac{1}{2}$$ – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ =$$\frac{3}{8}$$ – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = $$\frac{2}{8}$$

b. ($$\frac{7}{8}$$ – $$\frac{1}{2}$$) – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = ____________ – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = ____________
($$\frac{7}{8}$$ – $$\frac{1}{2}$$) – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = ____________ – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = ____________

c. $$\frac{7}{8}$$ – ($$\frac{1}{2}$$ – $$\frac{1}{8}$$) = $$\frac{3}{8}$$ –$$\frac{1}{8}$$= $$\frac{2}{8}$$
($$\frac{7}{8}$$ – $$\frac{1}{2}$$) – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = $$\frac{7}{8}$$ – $$\frac{1}{8}$$ = $$\frac{6}{8}$$

Explain how you can use your answers to conclude that subtraction is not associative.
The equation one and two shows that by using associative property addition gives the same answer
but two and three shows that by using associative property subtraction gives the different answer
