3.14......


From left to right starting with tenthousandths countdown 8 places.

...(tenthousands) (thousands) (hundreds) (tens) (ones)(decimal point) (tenths) (hundredths) (thousandths) (tenthousandths)...

TTH, TH, H, T, . , t, h, th, tth


What is the rule when rounding up?

If the last numeral being rounded is 5 or higher then you round up to the next tenth

231.45 rounded to the nearest tenth is 231.5.
231.44 rounded to the nearest tenth is 231.4. 

What are the 3 basic rules for determining significant numbers?

1) All nonzero digits are significant.
2) All zeroes between significant digits are significant. 3) All zeroes that lie to the right of the decimal point and the last nonzero digit from the right are significant. 
300
3003 300.0

For multiplying, use "least significant digits".

The Distributive Property is written how?

a(b + c) = ab + ac

In numbers, this means, for example, that 2(3 + 4) = 2×3 + 2×4.


By the distributive property how would you rearrange the problem: 4x – 8

4x – 8 = 4(x – 2)

4x8 = 4/x8 = 4(x2)


The Associative Property (or grouping/associating) is written how for addition? multiplication?

For addition, the rule is "a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c"; in numbers, this means 2 + (3 + 4) =
(2 + 3) + 4. For multiplication, the rule is "a(bc) = (ab)c"; in numbers, this means 2(3×4) = (2×3)4. 


rearrange the associative property 2(3x)

(2×3)x

The answer is not 6.


Simplify 2(3x), and justify your steps.

2(3x) is original (given) statement
(2×3)x by the Associative Property 6x simplification (2×3 = 6) 


Explain the Commutative Property.

Commutative comes from commute or to move around. This property doesn't ask to simplify. Only to move around

a+b=b+a


How is the Commutative Property written?

For addition, the rule is "a + b = b + a"; in numbers, this means 2 + 3 = 3 + 2. For multiplication, the rule is "ab = ba"; in numbers, this means 2×3 = 3×2.
